How Science looks in EYFS
Children at the expected level of development in Early Years will:
Explore the natural world around them, making observations and drawing pictures of animals and plants
Understand some important processes and changes in the natural world around them, including the seasons and changing states of matter.
Learning of Science is implemented at St Uny by continuous provision including opportunities to explore, investigate and experiment, using different objects and materials. Materials and their properties, forces, animals, birds, growing and lifecycles will be a focus in EYFS.
Continuous provision will include: daily use of the outside space, a range of equipment (e.g. magnifying glasses, magnets, pipettes), books and resources to support explorations of the natural environment.
The children's learning will be enriched and enhanced by visitors, educational trips and visits to the local library. Opportunities to explore high quality non-fiction texts will also be available within the learning environment.
Subjects will be explored through topic planning, the children's interests and observations of progress and understanding will be made on Tapestry.
