'I love science because you find out amazing things doing experiments!'

Frankie, Year 3


The National Curriculum, which was implemented at St John’s from September 2014 states that, “A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils should be taught essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science.


The children are exposed to a range of exciting topics including;

  • Plants,
  • Animals (including humans),
  • Everyday materials,
  • Seasonal changes,
  • Light,
  • Earth and Space,
  • Electricity,
  • Evolution and Inheritance.


The key skills of enquiry and investigation are embedded into each topic and the children’s skills progress and develop as they move through the years. At St. John’s we want our children to ask questions about what they observe, investigate further to deepen their knowledge and to be curious about the world around them.


At St John’s, we want to encourage children to understand the importance of science in everyday life. We therefore welcome visitors who can discuss their work and its application in science. If you can help, please contact your child’s teacher.
