At St Saviour’s, we recognise the importance of Science in every aspect of daily life. We give the teaching and learning of Science the prominence it requires as one of the core subjects taught in Primary Schools.
As an area of learning, Science is concerned with increasing all (including SEND) pupils’ knowledge and understanding of our world, and with developing skills associated with Science as a process of enquiry. It will develop the natural curiosity of the child, encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence.
We ensure that the Working Scientifically skills are developed and extended throughout children’s time at the school so that they can apply their knowledge of science when using equipment, conducting experiments, building arguments and confidently explaining scientific concepts.
Science at St Saviour’s is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using, applying and learning skills in all three disciplines of Biology, Physics and Chemistry.
We use the White Rose Science curriculum to ensure that all children are exposed to high quality teaching and learning experiences, which allow children to develop their scientific enquiry and investigative skills. They are immersed in scientific vocabulary, which aids children’s knowledge and understanding not only of the topic they are studying, but of the world around them.
Planning for Science is a process in which all teachers are involved to ensure that the school gives full coverage of the National Curriculum and ‘Understanding of the World’ in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Science is taught as discrete units and teachers plan to suit their children’s interests, current events, their own teaching style, the use of any support staff and the resources available.
Written work in learning books demonstrates that the majority of pupils deepen their scientific understanding of a topic and achieve age related expectations. Pupils enjoy science lessons and are highly engaged by their science learning.
