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.

Through Science pupils understand how major scientific ideas contribute to technological change, impacting on industry, business and medicine and improving quality of life.

At St. John’s our aim is to foster and develop our pupils’ curiosity about themselves, their world and the forces at work in it. Children grow as scientists by both building on their knowledge base and developing their scientific skills across their time in the school. This is delivered through carefully planned lessons that engage and challenge learners in line with our two-year rolling programme across the school. The curriculum coverage for this can be found via the links below:
