Science

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.

WORLD THINKING DAY- FRIDAY 22ND FEBRUARY Some of our children wore their uniforms with pride in school today to celebrate World Thinking Day on the 22nd Feburary during the half term holiday. The day focuses on International Friendship and encourages the children to think about guiding and scouting all over the world.
