Vision for Science at St Peter’s Catholic Primary School:
At St Peter’s, we encourage children to ask questions about their world, develop their scientific knowledge and find answers through first-hand experience and practical investigation. Our intention is to develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of enquiries that help children to answer scientific questions about the world around them.
At St Peter’s, we strive to ensure children are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to help take their learning further.
At St Peter’s, we aim to develop pupils’ enjoyment and interest in Science and ensure that it is engaging and fun.
And the winner of our Science Photo Exhibition 2018-19 was....Liam from Year 6. Well done Liam!
Liam's description of his photo...
In this picture you can see the trees and lights being reflected onto the still, calm pond. In the daytime the sky is blue so the water appears blue because of the sun. But this picture is at night time, so the sky is dark making the pond appear dark. The lights behind the trees play the part of the sun and reflect the image of the trees into the dark pond water. This makes it look like the trees are growing down in to the water as well as up into the dark sky.
