At St Catherine’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that Science is a core subject which is paramount in igniting pupils’ curiosity and confidence to explore and discover the world around them, so that they develop a deeper understanding of the world we live in.
Our long term vision for Science is that all pupils access high-quality weekly Science lessons and progress their learning through practical and enjoyable lessons which fosters a love of inquiry and a thirst for knowledge.
Our Science curriculum encourages pupils to be like Scientists by working scientifically, developing a love for STEM topics and the skills required for a future occupation within this industry. These skills include enquiry-based thinking, problem solving and resilience.
Through our Science curriculum, we also aim to promote and develop transferable skills such as observation, communication and teamwork and allow mathematical skills to be applied.
Children will find that Science can be inspiring and fun and will experience the joy of having wonderful ideas, explorations and investigations. We want our children to be confident, independent, life-long learners who explore the world around them.
Year 4 Trip to the Life Centre
Year 4 had a brilliant day at the Life Centre. They took part in a Science workshop filled with experiments, watched the 'Fire and Ice' Science show and visited the planetarium. 
Year 2 STEM Workshop
Year 2 have loved taking part in a three-week STEM Workshop focusing on materials and the environment.
Week 1 - We investigated the use of different materials to create new products.
Week 2 - We created a method for a recycling plant to separate the magnetic materials from the other materials.
Week 3 - We investigated the use of different liquids to separate materials of different densities.
Thank you to Jeff from Success 4 All for our our fantastic workshop.
