Science at SMCPS



In science, we will inspire and engage our children by giving them lots of opportunity to practically pursue their curiosity in the world around us within a safe environment, developing a continually evolving knowledge and understanding. We promote the experience of investigating and thoughtfully questioning scientific phenomena with a problem-solving approach and a focus on developing scientific vocabulary. Our aim is to encourage our young scientists to become confident, life-long learners who are able to apply core skills across the curriculum which will then equip them for an ever-changing world.
