Science at St Johns

Science Curriculum Intention

•    To secure children’s knowledge in science to enable them to develop as effective scientists.
•    To develop children’s skills to be able to work scientifically, utilising their learnt knowledge.
•    To provide children with opportunities to investigate and explore key scientific principles through hands on practical experiences.
•    To enable children to use their science skills in relation to everyday life to support their understanding of the world around them.
•    To enthuse children in their learning, exposing them to the work of well known scientists, in order to promote a lifelong love of the  subject.

Science Implementation
•    Please open the following link to see our long term plan for Science.
•    Please open the following link to see the progression in knowledge and skills throughout the year groups.
•    Science is taught once a week in every year group.
•    Science is planned using the Working Scientifically and Topic related National Curriculum objectives.
•    Other resources are used to support the teaching of Science such as Whiterose planning.
•    We assess pupil progress using the Whiterose end of block topic assessment tests. This information is used to make a judgement about achievement at the end of each topic and is reported to parents as Expected level or Not Expected level at the end of the school year. 

Science Impact
•    Pupils’ work is evidenced in the Science workbooks.
•    End of unit assessment tests which show the level a child is working at.
•    Displays in classrooms.
