Science

Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science. – Edwin Powell Hubble

INTENT

At St. Francis our vision is to give children a Science curriculum which enables them to explore and discover the world around them, so that they have a deeper understanding of the world we live in. To achieve this it involves exciting, practical hands on experiences that encourage curiosity and questioning. Our aim is that these stimulating and challenging experiences help children secure and extend their scientific knowledge and vocabulary. We believe that these opportunities will ensure that our children are confident, life- long learners who will explore the world around them. Opportunities need to extend to all pupils in order to nurture a love of discovery through rich experiences both inside and outside of school.

IMPLEMENTATION

Our Knowledge Organisers 

These are taken home before the start of every new term. These contain the knowledge the children need to know. In school they are regularly quizzed on them and below are also some quizzes to do at home.
