Science at St George’s

At St George’s, we aim to make science fun while ensuring that all children are able to develop their scientific knowledge and understanding through each area of learning. We are equipping children with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.


In Foundation Stage, the children learn to use all of their senses to explore the world around them. They explore and identify changes though cooking and observations of the seasons.


In Key Stage One, the children begin to understand how to work scientifically, making reference to fair testing, predictions and recording results.


In Key Stage Two, the children deepen their understanding of working scientifically, building on prior knowledge through research and investigating.


We are combining science, technology, engineering and maths to create a ‘STEM’ curriculum, to enable children to have a broader understanding of how these subjects can be applied to the ‘real world’. As part of this, we have made links with the local company ‘DENSO’ and are working with them to provide further opportunities for the children.


We also have a STEM club, which runs on a Thursday lunchtime for KS1 and KS2 children.
