We are scientists at St Margaret Ward.
We teach Science because we want to enhance children’s natural curiosity and excitement about our wonderful world and beyond.
Our children will develop essential scientific knowledge and skills, through relevant and real-life contexts. We aim to encourage the children to value its connection to our lives and its importance for our future.
We will deliver opportunities for the children to work both independently and collaboratively in order to ask questions and discover answers through enquiry-based learning. Every child will be given the opportunity to become independent thinkers through problem solving whilst learning about a range of key scientific topics, in line with the National Curriculum.
In addition, below is the long-term plan of the science topics taught in the different year groups from Nursery to Year 6.
