Welcome to the Science page!
At St. Stephen’s we believe in a practical engaging hands on approach to science. Along with guided activities we encourage children to create their own investigations and experiments to lead their own learning. By creating their own investigations, the children develop key scientific skills as well as developing their scientific knowledge. This approach is supported by the National Curriculum which highlights the importance of practical activities in science education.
Science at home
There are several internet sites giving ideas for science experiments at home, they include:
Encourage your children to learn by playing interactive science games. Below you will find links to online educational games for science. If you know of any other games that you feel may be beneficial to the learning of science please feel free to submit a link to us via our 'Contact Us' page on our website. We will investigate it and may add the resource link to this page.
We have done our best to ensure the sites below are safe but due to the nature of the internet we would like to request that you report any e-safety concerns you may have relating to the links we have listed on this or any other page on our website. There is the possibility that some of the links may change in the future since many are hosted on external websites and we will try to ensure the links stay as current as possible, but if you find a link that is not working please let us know and we will make sure it is restored.
