At St. Augustine’s we want pupils to develop a complex knowledge of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, but also adopt a broad range of skills in working scientifically and beyond. Through the Kapow science scheme pupils make associations between their science learning and their lives outside the classroom. Our curriculum aims to encourage critical thinking and empower pupils to question the hows and whys of the world around them. Enrichment within our Science curriculum is promoted through educational visits, using our local area, inviting guests to our school and visiting the Science Museum as core necessities within the science learning and teaching.



St Augustine’s Science scheme is a spiral curriculum, with essential knowledge and skills revisited with increasing complexity, allowing pupils to revise and build on their previous learning. A range of engaging recall activities promote frequent pupil reflection on prior learning, ensuring new learning is approached with confidence. Our Science scheme encompasses an ‘in action’ strand that is interwoven throughout to make the concepts and skills relevant to pupils and inspiring for future application. Teachers create a positive attitude to science learning within their classrooms and reinforce an expectation that all pupils are capable of achieving high standards in science. Children are encouraged to ask their own questions and be given opportunities to use their scientific skills and research to discover the answers. This curiosity is celebrated within the classroom. Learning is designed to provide appropriate challenge to all learners, in line with the school’s commitment to inclusion and belonging.



Pupils will leave St Augustine’s having aquired a body of foundational knowledge for Biology, Physics and Chemistry topics. They will confidently demonstrate the use of scientific literacy through presenting concepts and communicating ideas using scientific vocabulary. Pupils will be able to evaluate and identify the methods that ‘real world’ scientists use to develop and answer scientific questions. They will demonstrate working collaboratively and practically through a range of investigations. Pupils will articulate their understanding of scientific concepts and be able to reason scientifically using rich language linked to science.
