Science leader: Mrs Holcroft

At St Polycarp’s we aim to develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural world through weekly dedicated science lessons, cross- curricular teaching and outdoor activities and trips linked to the science curriculum.  We provide lots of practical activities that encourage children to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes. Each year we aim to have a science “extra” such as science days or our recent involvement in growing seeds that had been to space with Tim Peake.
