Science at St. James

Welcome to the Science area of our website!

The subject leader for Science at St James' is Mrs Malik.


The three aims of our Science curriculum at St. James Lower Darwen are:

  • to develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of Biology, Chemistry and Physics
  • to develop an understanding of the nature, processes and methods of Science through different types of scientific enquiries that help children to answer scientific questions about the world around them
  • to be equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of Science today and for the future.


Snapshot of Science

Each half term the children have been working collaboratively and discussing their ideas linked to a real life purpose and asking questions to deepen their understanding of a topic. Key scientific terminology has been introduced throughout each unit and knowledge has been built upon progressively. The children have explored, planned their own investigations and learned practically through a range of scientific enquiry types. Science lessons have challenged and motivated pupils to help understand the world around them.
