At Royston St John Baptist CE Primary, we love science because it allows everyone to develop the knowledge and skills to be able to become healthy individuals and to help achieve their aspirations as they move forward through their lives. Science is not just about science labs, and old men in white coats – it’s about investigation and experiences for everyone. Science not only helps us to understand and make sense of the world around us, but also to understand how things work in this forever changing and evolving technological world. As we understand more about life and the world around us, we realise that there is even more to learn and the infinite potential of this is exhilarating. Furthermore, the teachings of science give use the strategies to solve everyday problems and to be able to thrive in the modern world, in which we live.

‘I am among those who think that science has great beauty.’

Marie Curie
