St Bartholomew's CE Primary

Considerate, Co-operative, Confident

Science Curriculum Page

Our School Vision: Our goal is to produce members of society who are Considerate to everyone they meet, who have a Co-operative approach to life and who are Confident in each other and in themselves to strive for the very best that they can be.

We aim to achieve this by using Christian values as our guide and helping them to grow within a caring and inclusive community

How Science fits into the vision: Scientific understanding and practice covers so much of the world we live in.  It is vital for to develop a better world and how we can show consideration for our planet and the future of humankind.  With clear development in knowledge, methods and investigations, our children's confidence about themselves and the world around them can only grow.  When carrying out practical work, we encourage strong co-operation between pupils in order to learn through shared experience.  Science gives us a greater consideration for the world around us and how we fit in it.

Our Science Subject Leader: Hello, my name is Mr Crabtree and as well as being the Headteacher, I also lead Science.  My background was originally in engineering so I am very keen for children to apply their skill to the real world and learn how they can both understand it and make it better for each other and for our environment. We are well equipped to do this in school and see science as an important part of our overall curriculum.

Our Science Curriculum: Our Science Curriculum follows the National Curriculum requirements and provides part of our broad and balanced curriculum unique to our school, ensuring our pupils' scientific knowledge and understanding and how they can work scientifically equips them well to comprehend, develop and live within our shared world.

Our Science Intent:  Our intent for Science at St Bartholomew's is to develop scientific knowledge and understanding and the ability to work scientifically within the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics by teaching scientific concepts and enquiry that will help them to find answers about the world around them and how it impacts upon us.
