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.

Welcome back to the new school year. On our first day the children did some lovely science work. We looked at the seasons and discussed the changes we will see over the year. We also worked out which months were in each season. A lovely start.#SimmsCrossScience

In Science we have been learning about the Life Cycle of an Oak Tree. We have identified how a tree begins to grow and the important things the tree will need to grow🌳💧 #SimmsCrossScience
