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.


The document below explains the three I's- Intent, Implementation and Impact for Science here at St. John's. 

Intent- Our aims of education and overarching curriculum design here at St. John’s- Why we do what we do!

Implementation- Our curriculum and what we offer our children- What we do and how we do it!

Impact- Has our intent impacted on our learners? Does what we do make a difference to our children?

Have a look at the Science Knowledge Web below and the significant Scientists the children find out about!
