Learning is Remembering and Recalling...
Our Science Curriculum is based upon the National Curriculum Primary Science programmes of study as well as Laudato Si’: On Care for our Common Home. As part of our Catholic mission, Laudato Si’ is the appeal from Pope Francis to ‘every person living on this planet’ for an inclusive dialogue about how we are shaping the future of our planet and acknowledging the urgency of our environmental challenges.
Science teaching at St Augustine’s therefore aims to give all children a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge to help them to think scientifically, to gain an understanding of scientific processes and also an understanding of the uses and implications of Science, today and for the future. This includes learning about the positive AND negative effects and impact of scientific and technological advances on a local, national and global scale.
