Pupil Voice


"We really like using the equipment in school when we are carrying out our investigations." - Year 4


"I love it when I get to find out questions that I've asked in lessons." - Year 3


"When my teacher role plays scenarios, it helps me to understand the learning in more detail." - Year 6


"My favourite place to learn in science is outside, it's great finding habitats and seeing where all the different insects live." - Year 2

At St Joseph's, we believe that a high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.


Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.


We believe that through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils will recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They will also understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. But most of all, we learn to love science!



The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
  • develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future
