Our Curriculum

In Science lessons, we follow the National Curriculum.  The national curriculum expectations have been divided equally into four topics; Working Scientifically, Materials, Physical Processes and Life Processes and Living Things (Chemistry, Physics and Biology).

Our learning in Science is enquiry based. Each of our topics begins with a big question which is referred to each lesson and gradually answered by the end of a unit. All of our units of work are supported by knowledge organisers which support the children's learning. They provide; the big question, learning objectives, useful prior learning and vocabulary.

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.

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, using data and ensuring fair tests. There are end of year expectations for these working scientifically skills which progress every Key Stage.

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.
