Intent/What we aim to do through our Science Curriculum

Science in St Anne’s Catholic Primary School

Science is a significant part of human culture and represents one of the pinnacles of human thinking capacity. It provides a laboratory of common experience for development of language, logic, and problem-solving skills in the classroom. Through exciting and inventive lessons, we teach research skills, practical uses of knowledge and delving deeper into investigative science, all these approaches teach a life long love of learning. This process enables children of all ages and ability to succeed, enjoy and learn through ‘hands on’ experiences. Adaptations are made to Science lessons to ensure that all children are able to access the curriculum and are not disadvantaged by Special Educational Needs or Disability


Across St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, we are following the National Curriculum objectives for Science.

We cover all areas of the subject to prepare the children for further Science in Secondary school and future life. The topic areas are:

Key Stage 1:


Animals including Humans

Everyday materials

Seasonal change

Living things and their habitats


Key Stage 2:

Further plants

Animals including humans



Forces and magnets

Living things and their habitats

Animals including humans

States of matter



Properties and changes of material

Earth and space

Evolution and inheritance

Impact/Children's Learning

Year 4

In science, year 4 have been measuring the temperature of materials that melt. They melted chocolate in pudding cups that were in hot water. They found out that different types of chocolate melt at different temperatures and that chocolate changes from a solid to a liquid. 

Year 2

LQ: Which material has the best grip?

Today we investigated which material on the bottom of shoes provides the best grip.

LQ: Which tights are the stretchiest?

Miss Talbot needs to decide which pair of tights to wear tomorrow. She needs a pair that stretches quite a bit so they keep her legs warm. However, all her pairs of tights are quite small! Which ones will stretch the most and fit her legs the best?

As a class we investigated how stretchy Miss Talbot's tights are. We placed weights in each pair of tights and measured ho far they stretched.
