Mrs Ginns is the science manager at All Saints and she loves science!

 

 

How we teach science

At All Saints, science is taught through themes when it fits but if it doesn’t fit then we teach it discretely. We don’t use a scheme for science and work on a two year rolling programme to ensure coverage within each phase of the school.

We like to make science fun, exciting, challenging and relevant and get the children doing, talking and thinking.

We believe science provides the foundations for understanding the world and should teach children to understand how science can be used, predict how things will behave and analyse the causes. Science will play more and more of a part in our children’s futures and careers and we believe strongly in preparing them for this.

Development plans for science

We are working hard to keep further improving our science provision at All Saints.

We are doing this in many ways but our key focuses this year are:

  • Increasing the links science has with literacy.
  • Building further on the amount of challenge children experience in science.
  • Increasing the amount of time spent developing enquiry skills

 

Challenge in science

We provide challenge for children in every lesson. This could be through a task, specific questioning or in the form of a differentiated extension task. We want to allow every child to reach their potential.

Us in action

We don’t just write about science – we do it! Here are some photos of our curious and creative super scientists in action!

Science ambassadors

We are introducing science ambassadors this year who will be year 5 and 6 children who love science. These children will lead and challenge science across the school, offering support to teachers when needed – particularly with the younger children.

They will also be running some fun science workshops at lunchtimes throughout the year.

Keep looking as we will let you know who they are soon!

 

How can you support your children in science?

 

Some links below with ideas of games and ideas to help you support your child. The most important thing is to get them thinking scientifically – asking questions and being curious about the world. Talk to them about science in your homes and in the media. If you need any further support please let me know.
