Science at St Antony's
At St Antony's, we seek to enable our children to experience and observe phenomena, looking more closely at the natural and humanly-constructed world around them. Children are;
- encouraged to discover their passion for Science through hands-on experiences where they become curious and ask questions to further deepen their knowledge and understanding,
- supported to develop their understanding of scientific ideas by using different types of scientific enquiry to answer their own questions, including observing changes over a period of time, noticing patterns, grouping and classifying things, carrying out simple comparative tests, and finding things out using secondary sources of information,
- provided opportunities to use scientific language to talk about what they have found out and communicate their ideas to a range of audiences in a variety of ways,
- nurtured to develop an understanding of God's world and the responsibilities we have as humans to look after our surroundings, not just locally but worldwide and
- prepared for life in an increasingly scientific and technological world and readied for the next stage of their educational journey where they will feel passionate about making positive changes for the greater good.
Most of the learning about science is done through the use of first-hand practical experiences and is enhanced by appropriate secondary sources, such as books, photographs and videos.
'I Can' Statements for Science
Our Science Ambassadors play an important role in our school! They work hard to plan and prepare engaging activities which are delivered during Science week, they participate in whole-school assemblies to showcase experiments and they support the delivery of workshops across all year groups! Our Science Ambassadors show great interest and have a good understanding of Science and what Science is!

BRITISH SCIENCE WEEK
14th - 18th March 2022
Our focus for British Science Week was - GROWTH!
But what is GROWTH and where do we see it?!
Each class worked super hard during British Science Week to learn all about growth, both new and old! We completed experiments, carried out parent workshops and participated in a workshop with SUBLIME SCIENCE!
We completed a whole school investigation on hand spans and used our data to identify trends across the school! All data was input into an chart to present our results.
