The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
- Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of scientific enquiries that help them to ask scientific questions about the world around them
- Are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future
The bedrock of the national curriculum is our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which has carefully prepared children for the learning journey ahead. Within a nurturing and play-based EYFS environment, children have learned basic and transferable skills; absorbed relevant knowledge and grown in maturity, as well as developing a thirst for learning. The details of your child's learning at this important stage and how it has prepared them for the jounrney ahead can be found below.
