Science at St James'
During British Science Week 2018 (9th-18th March), St James' will be immersing the children into science across years 1 - 6! With outstanding science lessons ands experiments right through to guest visits and workshops, this year is set to inspire more children across the STEM subjects.

Learning about the function of blood in the human body, the children had the chance to take blood themselves.
An Insight into Engineering
Here at St James', we are very fortunate to benefit from weekly 'build a bike' afternoon workshops. More recently, during Science Week 2018 some of our Year 4 girls had the opportunity to take apart and reassemble bicycles with our resident bike mechanic!
The children recently had assemblies from the NHS on healthy eating - particularly focusing on eating a wide range of coloured foods (to help achieve 5 a-day) and cutting down on sugar and took part in poster design competitions to promote healthy eating.
St James' Science curriculum
Pupils at St James' study science every week, developing both a rich scientific knowledge and a range of investigative skills. Please find the range of topics covered in each year group at the bottom of the page.
As part of our creative curriculum, children's science learning is linked to their topic and Power of Reading text. As well as engaging activites in the classroom, we combine visits and trips to help bring the children's learning to life. Have a look on the individual class pages to see what we've been learning recently!
