Science Curriculum Overview
At St Thomas More, it is our vision to instil a lifelong love of science within our children, enabling them to have high aspirations and be aware of all future possibilities.
Together, we work collaboratively and discuss our ideas
Have fun while working scientifically
Outdoors is used to enhance and enthuse
Make links to real life experiences
Ask questions and try to find answers
Scientists and engineers visit to enthuse and inspire us
Models and resources are used to enrich learning
Ownership – we plan our own investigations
Resilience – we never give up when we face challenges
Explore through hands-on, practical investigations
During Science Week, we ran a competition for children to guess the job of some scientists, based on three items they showed and talked about. Congratulations to the winning children who worked out what these scientists do.
We also ran a 'Finding Plants' competition for all the family. Plants can definitely be found growing in the strangest of places!
Congratulations to our young scientists who have worked really hard to achieve their Superstar Crest award!
