Science Statement of Intent

At Simms Cross Primary School, it is our intention to recognise the importance of science in every aspect of daily life. We intend to build a science curriculum which results in the acquisition of essential knowledge and enables children to become enquiry based learners. 

In science lessons, we will nurture the children’s excitement and develop their natural curiosity about the world in which we live. Our school will encourage respect for living organisms and the physical environment and will provide opportunities for critical evaluation of evidence. The skills associated with working scientifically will be embedded throughout our teaching and learning, and we will encourage the children to present their discoveries in different ways.

Children will develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the teaching of physics, biology and chemistry. This will equip the children with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science today and for the future. 

The science curriculum will progress across key stages and will be delivered continuously throughout the school year. Where possible, we will make meaningful links with other subjects such as English. Through science, children will be taught the importance of writing for a purpose and specific audiences. Children will also be able to apply their mathematical knowledge, including collecting, presenting and analysing data, to their understanding of science.

In science we have been learning about food chains. We learnt that the plants are the producers and the animals are the consumers. We also learnt that some animals are prey, some are predators and some are both. #SimmsCrossScience

Year 1 have been identifying different animals. We have matched the picture to their name. We then played a game of guess who.
I live in a burrow.
I pounce on my prey.
I am a spider.
What am I?

In science today we were testing different materials to see if they were waterproof. We place water on each material and waited to see what happened. We found that three of our materials were waterproof. #SimmsCrossScience

Y6 have been looking at proteins in #BritishScienceWeek2022 and how there are many proteins in our body, medicines and food production! #SimmsCrossScience

Year 1 and Year 1/2 are really enjoying listening to STEM story time for British Science week. We are listening with 129 schools. WOW! #SimmsCrossScience #BritishScienceWeek2022
