Science

Sunrise Curriculum Intent
Our unique Sunrise curriculum is research informed to build children's interests in powerful knowledge and skills, supported by long term memory pedagogy to create life long aspirations. This is underpinned by the school vision 'You are never too young to make a difference.'

 

Science Intent

Science teaching at St Mary’s C of E Primary School aims to give all children a lifelong love of science through a strong understanding of the world around them whilst acquiring specific skills and knowledge helping them to think scientifically. The children are exposed to a rich and varied curriculum through a range of exciting and engaging topics which aim to challenge and meet the needs of our children. Scientific enquiry skills are clearly embedded to develop children’s curiosity, encourage them to ask questions about the world around them and to become independent learners in exploring possible answers for their scientific based questions. Children develop a range of scientific vocabulary to help them to effectively communicate their ideas, questions and findings.

 

 Our school vision promotes a safe, caring environment in order to 'change the world where we live'. Our Science curriculum allows children to be inspired by scientists of the past and ask and answer the questions necessary to change the future. 

Our Science Learning in Action
Here you can see us enjoying hands on experiences through our science learning, learning about the world around us in order to make a difference and change the world where we live. 
We have enjoyed learning about how to protect different species, how to look after chicks and how to stay healthy.
