The named Science Subject Leader at Our Lady's is Mrs H Spear
Science teaching at Our Lady's aims to:
In the Early Years Foundation Stage, children are developing the crucial knowledge, skills and understanding that help them to make sense of the world. This forms the foundation for later work in science.
At Key Stages 1 and 2, science is taught using the 2014 Kent scheme of work to support planning. This was developed in line with the National Curriculum.
A range of resources are used to deliver the science curriculum and these are supplemented and renewed during the year, as required.
Visits offsite and visitors to the school support and enhance children's learning. The school also enjoys links with local secondary schools.
Assessment takes place at the end of each topic and across the year when assessing 'working scientifically'.
Teacher assessment is supported through summative topic assessment tests in years 2-5.
