“The important thing is to never stop questioning.” Albert Einstein      

Science Subject Leader is Mrs Rhodes


Our curriculum intent for Science is that every child will: 

  • Be curious about the world around them and ask questions about scientific phenomenon
  • Develop their own ideas and understanding in order to make sense of the world we live in
  • Develop and acquire the scientific knowledge needed to understand the wider uses and implications of science in the world today
  • Have opportunities to work practically, using scientific equipment which is appropriate to their age
  • Have opportunities to meet real scientists who can share their knowledge and love of the subject


Implementation of the Science Curriculum at Holy Trinity

Holy Trinity is committed to ensuring all children have full access to a high-quality science education.  This includes not just learning scientific knowledge, but also learning to work in a scientific manner. We have a range of scientific resources to support children in their learning, but also have links with Charters School, whose science department loan us their equipment too. The school also makes good use of our extensive outdoor grounds to give children opportunities to explore practical, real life science, whether it is learning about plants and animals or forces!

Our curriculum allows for meaningful Science links to be made across other subjects.


Impact of the Science Curriculum at Holy Trinity


Children have developed an enthusiasm and curiosity for the world we live and are confident to question and make scientific enquiries to find answers and solutions. During their time at Holy Trinity, children have confidently been engaged and enjoyed science lessons that have been progressive, diverse and have continued to build on essential knowledge.
