'Learning God's Way'

At St Mary’s our intent is to make all our pupils ‘Scientists’ by allowing them to investigate the world. We want to provide plentiful opportunities for them to gain knowledge about scientific concepts, famous people and theories. We want our children to develop inquisitive minds; ask questions and wonder at the world around them. Through our Science curriculum, we foster wisdom, respect, tolerance, dignity and hope to enable every child to flourish in the fullness of life.

Science Policy

At St. Mary's we ensure we follow the National Curriculum topics and objectives, which allow for natural progression across year groups. As teachers, we ensure, where possible, that topics fit with other areas of the curriculum and that our Science teaching fosters an interest in the children.

Science is taught in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 in line with the National Curriculum objectives

 Use of cross-curricular links wherever possible. ‘Science in the real world’

 Children in KS1 receive 1.5 hours of Science per week. Children in KS2 receive up to 2 hours of Science per week. Topic may be taught in a block format where suited rather than weekly.
