Science at Sir Henry Fermor

The pictures below show children in EYFS linking Science to their English text, 'Bears Don't Eat Egg Sandwiches.'

Science at Sir Henry Fermor is an engaging subject where the children are exposed to a knowledge rich curriculum where the facts are consolidated first. The children are then encouraged to think like scientists in order to investigate and understand everyday scientific phenomena. Through scientific enquiry, children will be able to explore and appreciate the how and the why that surrounds science in the world around us. 


Science teaching and learning will focus on:

  • building a strong foundation of knowledge that can be built and expanded upon from EYFS to Year 6 and beyond.
  •  scientific enquiry so children can develop scientific skills 
  • questioning; where the teachers pose thought provoking questions and the learners ask questions to deepen their understanding
  • STEM. During the year, children will have terms where they are involved in STEM science. This means an opportunity to revisit previous or new learning as well as encouraging creativity through cross curricular learning. The whole school is also involved in a Fermor STEM day.
  • encouraging the use of scientific language in their written work and discussion.
  • putting learning into context so children can relate their learning and experiences to real life. This means their learning will have a greater impact on them as scientists and encourage them to ask more questions.   


Throughout their time at Fermor, children will revisit most topics, building on their existing knowledge to create a deeper understanding of the subject. From Early years to Year 6, there are opportunities for exploration and investigation with children at the centre of everything we do. In Science at Fermor we inspire the children, believe in their ability and help them achieve as they should.

Super Displays


Our displays around the school model how we build on the children's existing knowledge and deepen their understanding. The children at Sir Henry Fermor start each topic by recording what they know and want to know as we travel through their learning journey. We solve our questions through investigations and testing, investigating in books and using secondary sources, and by observing what happens over time.
