Welcome to our Science page.
Here at St. Gildas' we believe that Science is integral to every part of life and so it is imperative that we nurture a love for Science in all of our pupils. Curiosity and being able to ask questions about ourselves and the world around us, make us life long learners!
On this page you will find links to information on our Science Curriculum and other curriculum enrichment opportunities that are happening at St. Gildas'.
The Science Curriculum
Here at St. Gildas', our Science Curriculum has been specifically chosen to provide a rich and balanced experience for all pupils. Lessons focus on practical activities, using a wealth of resources to provide context for learning knowledge and all of the necessary skills for scientific enquiry.
Please see below for more detailed information on our Science Curriculum.
We are very interested in listening to and including our pupils' voices in the decisions made to further childrens' learning and experiences in Science and that is why we recently recruited 8 pupils to become STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Ambassadors for the school. The STEM Ambassador team is made up of pupils from across the school and it is their agenda to meet once per month to discuss the state of Science at St. Gildas' and make decisions and plans on how they can improve the experiences for pupils.
Please see below for more detailed information about our STEM Ambassadors and their recent work, including the minutes from their meetings.
This year St. Gildas' are continuing to work with Professor Bubblework's to provide a weekly after school Science Club. The club meets on a Tuesday from 3:15pm- 4:30pm in our Learning Mentor room and is open to pupils from all year groups.
Please see below for more details.
This year our annual Science Week will become our first ever STEM Week! We have already been busy organising events, but are still searching for more to make this our best celebration yet! If you think that you might be able to help, or have any ideas to contribute, then please see the link below. The dates for St. Gildas' STEM week are 10th-14th June.
