Science

At St Silas, we believe a high quality science education develops children’s ideas and ways of working collaboratively that enables them to make sense of the world through working scientifically. At Silas, children will develop the knowledge, understanding and skills in science to ensure a smooth transition throughout all key stages.
We use the Kent Scheme of work with a focus on practical science and the development of science specific vocabulary. We aim to teach science in ways that are imaginative, purposeful, well managed and enjoyable whilst making links between science and other subjects. This will ensure that the children develop awe and wonder of God’s world and are able to begin to make sense of it through working scientifically.
The assessment of science is currently under review by the science subject leader and will be developed and implemented over this academic year after consultation with school management and teaching staff. We want to ensure that assessments will allow teachers to track progress effectively and fairly whilst ensuring progression throughout school. This information will be updated when detailed have been finalised.
