Science at St. Joseph’s

 

Curriculum: The National Curriculum 2014 for science aims to ensure that all pupils:

 · develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics

· develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them

· are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

 

We follow the Kent Primary Science Scheme of Work.

 

Groups: We learn in classes with differentiated learning suited to each child. We focus on practical investigations and tests which have a meaning and relevance to life. Children are encouraged to discuss their ideas and record their ideas in a variety of ways. 

 

Computing: We use a range of equipment to enhance scientific learning eg Digital cameras to record investigations, data loggers for accurate measurements of temperature and digital microscopes for close observation.
