Intent for Science


At St George's Primary school our aim is nurture scientific knowledge through exploring, questioning and investigating the world around us. We want to stimulate pupil’s curiosity about the world around them and begin to learn how things happen. Through asking questions about the world around them, we help to encourage the pupils to plan, observe, find answers and evaluate their scientific inquires to draw strong conclusions.

At St George's we follow the National curriculum supported with the Kent Primary Science Scheme. From when they begin in Reception our pupils develop their skills and knowledge learning how to plan and carry out their own scientific enquiries.

Throughout their scientific work and investigation they are expected and encouraged to use the vocabulary associated to the unit of work. 

Attached to the school is Forest school. This provides pupils with a hands on element to their scientific journey and experience things first hand in the world around them. The School also has a nature pond which allows children to see first-hand areas of their learning.

St George's has enhanced its' wider opportunities for pupils and has joined with Borden Grammar school, to provide more scientific experiences. St George's pupils also have opportunities to work with Canterbury Christchurch University to help further enrich the scientific journey at St George's.
