Science

At St John of Jerusalem we want to encourage  enquiring minds and develop our children's independent scientific thinking.  We believe science should be hands-on and fun, and integrated with other areas of the curriculum to give a rounded view of the world we live in.
 
In order to introduce the new curriculum, we have signed up to a new online Science Programme from Collins called Snap Science, which provides lesson plans, videos, activities and differentiated tasks for each session, and also gives us a clear assessment framework to assess each child's understanding of each unit.  The scheme is flexible enough to enable teachers to use their professional judgement and adapt it to suit their own classes. We use this scheme alongside the Science APP grid we already use. We have also conducted a resource audit to ensure that each class has the hands-on science resources that it needs.
