Boston St Nicholas C of E Primary School
A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundational knowledge and concepts, pupils should be encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They should be encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.

The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics;
- develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them; and
​- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.
At Boston St. Nicholas we have a Science week  at the beginning of the Spring Term.  Each year has a different theme. This year it was about Accidental Discoveries. We had a Mad Scientist come into school and we found out how 
penicillin was discovered. Key Stage 1 foud out all about Einstein while Key Stage 2 found out about Darwin.

Another project we have started this year has been the school garden which has been supported by our Science Governor, Mr Nodder. Olive Tree class have been planting vegetables. We enjoyed eating rhubarb and ice-cream. We have also grown strawberries, radishes, beetroot, tomatoes, peas and potatoes. We are looking for to further planting. We have been supported by Boston Borough Council.
