The EYFS framework is organised differently to the National Curriculum that is used for children in Year 1 to Year 6: it is organised across seven areas of learning rather than subject areas.
The table below identifies the statements taken from the 2020 Development Matters which are prerequisite skills for Science within the National Curriculum.
The most relevant statements for Science are taken from the following areas of learning:
- Communication and Language
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
- Understanding the World
Children have the opportunity to develop early skills in Science as part of daily continuous provision and focussed sessions at St.Peter’s.
