Curriculum

Our St. Cuthbert's Science Intent, Implementation and Impact Statements

Below is a document containing our statement of the '3 Is' for Science at St. Cuthbert's. These statements state how our Science curriculum will look, how we will implement it and what impact we aspire to see from the teaching and learning of Science at our school.

The progression of Science at St. Cuthbert's EYFS to Year 6

Below you will find a document which outlines the curriculum for each year group. This document shows the progression of knowledge, vocabulary and skills from EYFS to Year 6. You will notice that we aim to teach 'Sticky Knowledge' in each year. This is knowledge that is key and we aspire for it to be retained by the children. It will equip them with the knowledge they need to build upon in future years and to aid them in their future lives to understand the World around them

Each week the children will complete an investigation and receive a stamp in their passport. Once they have 8 stamps they will receive a cloth badge and a certificate.
