WHOLE SCHOOL SCIENCE MAP OVERVIEW 2020 2021

 

Science learning begins in EYFS where children develop their skills of observation, prediction, critical thinking and discussion through their own discoveries and planned experiments. There is a strong emphasis on outdoor learning and providing children with the opportunity to be amazed by the natural world!

 

What are Knowledge Organisers?

Our St Paul’s knowledge organisers contain the key facts and information that your child needs to have a basic knowledge and understanding of a topic. They also act as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.

Please visit your child’s year group page to see the science knowledge organisers for their year group.

Will my child go on any science trips?

We want our children to be curious and excited about the world around them. Each year, a range of exciting trips and visits related to science are organised by teachers, for example visiting museums, parks and going on nature walks.
