At Cathedral Primary School, our vision is to provide a hands-on Science curriculum, which empowers pupils to explore and discover the world around them. We aim to do this through practical and exciting experiences, which foster curiosity and passion for learning. Our Science curriculum is designed to ensure key scientific concepts, skills and vocabulary are built upon progressively as pupils move up through the school. Within our curriculum, we connect with local scientists and make use of the environment around us in Bristol. This helps pupils see how Science is used in real-life contexts. We believe these opportunities will ensure our pupils are confident, life-long learners with a curiosity for the world around them.
