At St George's Primary school our aim is nurture scientific knowledge through exploring, questioning and investigating the world around us. We want to stimulate pupil’s curiosity about the world around them and begin to learn how things happen. Through asking questions about the world around them, we help to encourage the pupils to plan, observe, find answers and evaluate their scientific inquires to draw strong conclusions.
At St George's we follow the National curriculum supported with the PFAZ Science Scheme. From when they begin in Reception our pupils develop their skills and knowledge learning how to plan and carry out their own scientific enquiries. This allows for a continuous progression of skills from the EYFS focus on The Natural World right through to Evolution and Inheritance in year 6.
Attached to the school is a Forest School, nature garden and we are just a short walk to the beach. These opportunities provide pupils with a hands-on element to their scientific journey and experience the world around them.
