Science in our school provides opportunities for children to explore the world around them; to learn about space and the universe; to question and explore why things happen and how things work; and to debate and question ‘big’ ideas such as evolution. We want our pupils not only to enjoy learning and promote a love of science, but also to develop an enquiring mind and an awareness of how science is relevant in their day to day lives.
Science Subject Overview
Worm Project 2021/2022
Children at St Gregory’s have participated in a range of scientific enquiry with a real life purpose and began to understand the importance of these small creatures (worms) in our eco system and what was meant by this statement of Charles Darwin: "It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world, as have these lowly organised creatures."
To find out more please go to the partnership project with the Royal Society page of our school website found under classes.
KS1 and KS2 thoroughly enjoyed their science show ‘Energy Live' as part of our celebrations for British Science Week. In the evening, children and parents returned for a family show. They were captivated by a series of exciting, hands-on demonstrations that brought science to life.
