We want to create children who are eager to learn through investigation and experimentation, who ask questions and are stimulated to want to find out the answers-we want our St. John's children to aspire to be Scientists of the future with the fundamental belief, respect and responsibility for Gods wonderful world. Our children will be given opportunities to experience the natural and humanly constructed world around them. Staff will encourage children to be curious and ask questions about what they see whilst developing their understanding of scientific ideas. Children, through scientific enquiry, will be able to answer their own questions, including observing changes over a period of time, noticing patterns, grouping and classifying things, carrying out simple comparative tests, and finding things out using secondary sources of information developing their understanding of working scientifically. Each half term an overarching question will be presented to the children and they will focus on answering the questions in their Science lessons each week. Have a look at the Science Long Term Planning below.

We hope you are all enjoying the holidays in the beautiful sunshine- don't forget to take a photograph of an amazing thing in God's wonderful world. Wherever you visit- near or far look at God's fabulous creations, take a photograph and email it into school or print it out so we can create a beautiful display!
