Science at St Joseph's
At St. Joseph's, our science curriculum encourages children to explore scientific concepts and discover their relevance to the world around them. We aim to inspire children, develop their scientific knowledge and provide them with skills and tools that can be re-applied and strengthened each year.
At St. Joseph's, it was science week! We explored the book 'Star in a Jar' and learnt all about light and how to be a light. Each class focused on a particular page and were given a question by 'Eureka' to investigate and answer. Here are just a few of the wonderful examples of the little scientists at St. Joseph's exploring and learning about light in their class.
To conclude this amazing week, we all dressed up as scientists or an invention and shared some amazing facts about our chosen object or inspiring scientist.
St. Joseph's children are scientists that never rest! At home or at school they are always shining their scientific knowledge or abilities in their learning. Here are some amazing examples of our little St. Joseph's scientists conducting experiments and investigations at home and exploring the world around them...
We are all scientists at St Joseph's! Have a look at these photos showing what we have been learning about in Science in school so far...
Year 6 are microbiologists!
Year 6 learnt all about livings things and, specifically, micro-organisms. Looking at the characteristics of living things, they investigated whether a micro-organism such as 'yeast' is living or not by measuring the respiration rate of the organism. After analysis of fair testing and the impact of different variables, they concluded it was a living organism which respired quicker with the more nutrition provided.
