Intent statement for Science


We can be scientists.


Science at St. Matthews is taught to develop the child’s sense of excitement, curiosity and understanding of the world, with a sense of awe and wonder.


Teaching and learning in biology, physics and chemistry is designed to develop:


  • the vocabulary to describe, predict and explain their learning in words and writing
  • the knowledge to understand different scientific processes
  • the skills to investigate scientific questions practically
  • an understanding of how science has changed our lives in the past and how it may shape a healthy and prosperous future
  • an awareness of the work of diverse role models in science and technology

Science from around school!
