Science at St Philip’s encourages our children to be inquisitive, to question and to think scientifically. We aim to teach the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to understand concepts and phenomena that occur in the world around them and equip them with the motivation to seek explanations for these.
Every year we arrange a whole school science week. In previous years, we have had visitors from the wider community, visits to sites including Manchester Metropolitan University, the library, farms and zoos. This is where our children can use the skills that they have acquired.
Children learn the skills required for scientific enquiry and they will begin to appreciate the way science will affect their future on a personal, national and global level.
