Our Curriculum

We are using aspects from the learning challenge curriculum which uses Science as one of its drivers. The national curriculum expectations have been divided equally into year groups. The emphasis will be on the skills and knowledge and then how to apply these in answering scientific questions. To see the coverage of topics please see the whole school overview below. To understand more about how our scientific skills progress please see our skills progression.

Science Week

 

St-Mark’s Primary School has an annual Science Week. During the week the children will dedicate the whole week to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths. A highlight of the week is the Science Fair when children can to the rest of the school a Science project that they have created.

The document above is found in every child's Science book at St Mark's. Every lesson we work scientifically on one theme and our skills in Science improve through grouping, observing, researching, and ensuring fair tests. 

Year Six Investigating

Year 6 were investigating which  bug hotels would attract the most creatures. They built them and will observe them over the year. Other Year Groups will also be using them during their habitats topics to help with classification.
