Welcome to Nursery
Science in EYFS
Science in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is part of Understanding the World (UTW) section of the curriculum. Children are naturally inquisitive and love to ask questions, explore new things and investigate how things work. It is vital, therefore, that we develop their passion of scientific discovery from a young age.
At New Oscott Primary School, we aim to deliver a well-balanced EYFS curriculum, where children can explore, investigate and ask questions about objects, people and resources within their child initiated play and also during adult led and taught sessions.
A fundamental part of the EYFS curriculum is enabling the environment so that children can fully access aspects of UTW within all areas of the classroom, both inside and out.
