Raising the profile of Science at St. Luke's
During this year, much effort is being invested in raising the profile of Science here at St. Luke's. Our Teaching Staff have spent much time exploring what Science is all about and how we should deliver science in an exciting way. Led by our Science Lead, Mrs Edwards, we are currently applying for the Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM). We already believe we are well on the way to receive this award.
Have a look below of how we want Science to become here at St. Luke's......
We share below our vision for science here at St. Luke's:
'Our Science vision is firmly based on our school Curriculum Drivers and Principles.'
Spiritual and Moral
We are a Church school and a loving Christian family. We want our children to grow up in a loving world, feeling that they are a valuable part of it, knowing they have a contribution to make. We recognise and respect the range of beliefs and cultures in our world. Christian values and the love of God are at the heart of our teaching and learning.
Science provides opportunities for children to develop spiritually and morally in order to have a positive impact on people and society through scientific investigations. It also develops an understanding of the human race as merely ‘stewards’ of the environment.
My Place in the World
Pupils develop a good knowledge of the local community and the wider world. They are good citizens and are aware of their responsibility to care for the environment. Links to other schools and places broaden pupils’ understanding. They are aware of World events and have a developing general knowledge.
Science provides opportunities for children to develop citizenship skills enabling them to have a widening understanding of the local, national and global environment, how to protect it and their place in the world.
Pupils have the opportunity to communicate their learning through speaking & listening, writing and by using ICT. Pupils are encouraged to give their views and opinions across the curriculum through a range of real-life, purposeful learning opportunities.
Science provides opportunities for children to develop their investigative and communication skills. This occurs through children asking and answering their own questions in order to develop a greater understanding of the world they live in.
