Science Curriculum at St. Stephen's


At St Stephen's we believe a high-quality Science education provides foundations for understanding the world. It 

develops an understanding of scientific ideas and makes links between phenomena and experiences. It stimulates a child’s curiosity and It teaches methods of enquiry and investigation. Children learn to ask scientific questions and begin to appreciate the way Science will affect their future on a personal, national, and global level.


Our aims


In teaching Science we are developing in our children;


  • a positive attitude towards Science and an awareness of its fascination;
  • an understanding of Science through a process of enquiry and investigation;
  • confidence and competence in scientific knowledge, concepts and skills;
  • an ability to reason, predict, think logically and to work systematically and accurately;
  • an ability to communicate scientifically;
  • the initiative to work both independently and in co-operation with others;
  • the ability to use and apply Science across the curriculum and real life.
