“What goes up must come down.”
Isaac Newton – English mathematician, physicist, astronomer, theologian, and author.
At St. Michael’s, it is our intention to develop in all young people a lifelong curiosity and interest in the sciences through our explore Curriculum.
Our curriculum allows children to have the opportunity, wherever possible, to learn through varied systematic investigations, leading to them being equipped for life to ask and answer scientific questions using broad and varied scientific vocabulary, about the world around them.
As children progress through the year groups, from EYFS to Year 6, they build on their skills in working scientifically, their scientific knowledge and scientific vocabulary as they develop greater independence in planning and carrying out fair and comparative tests, identifying and classifying, modelling, pattern seeking, observing over time and researching using secondary evidence to answer a range of scientific questions.
The Haringey and Science Bug scheme of work we follow, ensure that children have a varied, progressive and well-mapped-out science curriculum with clear end points, that provides the opportunity for progression across the full breadth of science within EYFS, Understanding the World curriculum and the national curriculum for KS1 and KS2.
Our progressive curriculum addresses and constantly explores key substantive knowledge highlighted in the National Curriculum objectives as well as the disciplinary knowledge needed to achieve these end goals.

British Science Week 2023
For British Science Week this year, the theme was ‘Connections!’.
Nearly all inventions and innovations in science, maths and technology are built on connections; this can be between two or more people (the more brain power the better!), connections between new and old learning, topics or items. For example, Evolution shows us the ways that animals, humans and plants are all connected!
This year, we decided to base our science week on Inspirational Women in the field of Science.
