Science statement of intent

We are proudly equipping the scientists of tomorrow through an experiential curriculum fueled by passionate teaching. Enquiry, analysis and hands on exploration, form the foundations of our approach at every step of the child’s scientific journey enhanced by the natural environment and skill base within our locality. This has been recognised In our award of the Gilt PSQM

View the gallery below to find out how much we enjoy our science lessons at Sacred Heart.

 

 

Throughout the year, the children take part in many scientific trips with the added benefit of having   science based visitors invited into school as well.  These experiences bring the subject to life and deeper the children’s experiences and understanding.  To further this, we offer the children the opportunity to complete independent science projects at home. A weekly science club is also offered which gives the children extended science learning activities.

There is a strong focus on ‘working scientifically’ and pupils are taught to carry out their own investigations, carefully observing, measuring, fair testing and interpreting their results. Pupils in Key Stage 1 learn about plants, animals and habitats, everyday materials and seasonal change. In Key Stage 2they also learn about rocks, states of matter, electricity, light, animals and their habitats sound, forces, Earth and space, animals including humans and evolution and inheritance.
