Science is explaining how the world/universe works and changes.


At St Barnabas, we nurture young scientists through encouraging their curiosity and developing their understanding of how the world works. We aim to expand their confidence to work scientifically and think critically. We want children to gain substantive and disciplinary knowledge (science knowledge and working scientifically skills). We want them to be able to explain the material world based on concepts, laws, theories, and models that become established through scientific enquiry. We want children to be able to make scientific observations but also be able to explain their observations based on scientific facts. As well as this, we want to empower our children to lead a healthy, active lifestyle and make informed decisions about their future.
