Primary School


As scientists at St Joseph’s we investigate and explore the world around us. We use our scientific voices to question and reflect, developing our understanding as we learn.

We recently had 'Science Boffins' in to do a Science Assembly for the whole school. We learnt about the difference between Science and Magic: magicians don't tell us their secrets whereas scientists do! Please see below for some photos:


Science Assembly 2024

Last Year's PTFA decided to fund a whole school Science Assembly for us. It was so much fun!



Please see below for an overview of what we teach in each year group:

At St. Joseph’s our aim is to:

  • Provide a range of opportunities to study the world, the universe and all of Creation.
  • Develop scientific knowledge and skills through a range of ‘hands on’ enquiries.
  • To develop a sense of curiosity and excitement towards Science.
  • To provide opportunities to explore and develop ideas and opinions.
  • To consider how Science has changed our lives and how it is vital for the future.
