Pilsley C of E School


Science is taught through the Cornerstones scheme of work. Each half term the children focus on an imaginative learning project which opens up lines of enquiry covering a different aspect of the science curriculum. Children's scientific knowledge and skills build year on year to ensure progression in concepts and understanding. 

Some projects have an overt scientific focus whilst others offer opportunities for science learning across the curriculum.


Science in the Foundation Stage


In the Foundation Stage the science curriculum is covered within the specific area of learning and development called 'Understanding the World'. This area of learning "involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore and observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment." EYFS statutory Framework 2018.


Understanding the World has three strands: 


  • People and Communities
  • The World
  • Technology


In Foundation Stage we follow the cornerstones curriculum imaginative learning projects which provide lines of enquiry across the curriculum including Understanding the World.
