Science Knowledge and Skills Progression Grid

 

 

Miss Jenner is the science manager at All Saints and she loves carrying out weird and wonderful experiments!

 

 

Intent

At All Saints CofE Priamry, science is an integral part of our curriculum.  We strive to create a curriculum that is inclusive and engaging for all pupils.  We aim to deliver high quality teaching and learning opportunities that enable all children to achieve their personal best and develop a love of science.  We create a safe and supportive environment for all pupils to give them the confidence to develop their scientific skills.  Pupils have many opportunities to work together and we believe that this is essential to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

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. 

 

Implementation

At All Saints CofE Primary we provide challenging and enjoyable learning through a range of scientific activities, including scientific knowledge and skills and investigative skills.

  • Pupils engage in a variety of science activities in topic lessons
  • Pupils carry out a range of investigations
  • The long term plan for science sets out the progression and ensures that the National Curriculum requirements are fully met
  • All teachers have access to planning and resources that can be adapted to meet the needs of all pupils
  • We provide opportunities to participate in extra curricular activities, through after school clubs
  • Children are invited to participate in out of school activities/competitions

 

Impact

At All Saints CofE Primary we ensure that our science curriculum is progressive and allows children to develop skills that they can apply across the curriculum.  Pupil voice demonstrates that children enjoy science and able to remember key skills that they have developed over time.  Scientific achievements, both in and out of school are recognised and celebrated.

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:

  • To develop the use of the outside environment and incorporate this into science lessons.
  • To develop the use of the local community and the school outside space to enhance the teaching of science across the school.

 

 

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.

 

We will also be running a Science Challenge later in the year for all children to take part. The winners will get to spend an afternoon creating some seriously good experiments!

 

We will also be developing more links between the other schools within the MAST and setting up quizzes for pupils from each school for pupils in both LKS2 and UKS2.

 

 

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.
