Science

Science stimulates and excites pupils’ curiosity about phenomena and events in the world around them. It also satisfies this curiosity with knowledge. Because science links direct practical experience with ideas, it can engage learners at many levels. Scientific method is about developing and evaluating explanations through experimental evidence and modelling. This is a spur to critical and creative thought.  Through science, pupils understand how major scientific ideas contribute to technological change – impacting on industry, business and medicine and improving quality of life.

For this very reason, science is a very important part of our curriculum here at St. Anne's. We aim to prepare our children as best we can for the world around them; give them experiences to enable them to develop their scientific vocabulary, hypothesise and learn about the world around them.

We have begun to implement the new science curriculum 2014. Below are examples of work that the children have completed.

 Changes to the SCIENCE curriculum

•  Strong focus on scientific knowledge and language, rather than understanding the nature and methods of science in abstract terms

•  Evolution will be taught in primary schools for the first time in upper KS2

•  KS1 mainly focussed on life sciences, including seasonal changes.

We are following the new National Curriculum 2014 https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum

We celebrate National Science week every year with a rnge of activities in school; visitors in school and educational visits.
