Curriculum  »  Science

At St Margaret's, Science is all about developing the children’s knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live and furthering their curiosity through investigation and questioning.

We follow The National Curriculum programmes of study for each year group, which draws upon the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. From plants, animals, habitats and materials in Key Stage One, to magnetism, electricity, space and evolution in Key Stage Two, we cover a wide breadth of study for all our year groups.

Science is delivered, wherever possible as practical, hands-on lessons that ensure the children are fully immersed in their learning and discovery. Working scientifically forms the basis to all our science lessons and the children are taught to use the following practical scientific methods, processes and skills:

  • Questioning
  • Observing
  • Classifying
  • Pattern Seeking
  • Testing
  • Researching
  • Presenting Data
Intent, Implementation & Impact
