Our Intent

We aim to deliver a high-quality Science curriculum which provides foundations for understanding the world. Science has changed our lives and is vital to the world’s future prosperity, and all pupils will be taught the essential aspects of the knowledge, methods, processes and uses of science. Through building up a body of key foundation knowledge and concepts, pupils are encouraged to recognise the power of rational explanation and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about natural phenomena. They are also encouraged to understand how science can be used to explain what is occurring, predict how things will behave, and analyse causes.


Our Implementation

In Science we use our Key Objective Progression and Development by Year group to support skill and knowledge progression from Nursery through to Year Two. These have been divided into the following aspects …

  • Animals including humans
  • Everyday materials
  • Living things and their habitats
  • Plants
  • Seasonal changes
  • Working scientifically


Here is our progression of knowledge and skills document from Nursery to Year 2


Have a look at our Vocabulary Pyramids for Science below.

These show the progression of vocabulary that we use in school.
