EYFS Curriculum

The National Science Curriculum


A high-quality science education provides the foundations for understanding the world.  Through building up a body of knowledge and concepts through Science, pupils are encouraged to recognise the power exploration, observation and questioning what they know. They are encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.




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 enquiry that help them to answer 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.
