Science in EYFS is all about ‘Understanding the World’.  Discover how it provides a rich context full of awe, wonder and curiosity where children can develop valuable skills of literacy, language and communication.  Develop your understanding of how adult interactions and stimulating environments impact on children’s learning and consider how to embed the aims of the new EYFS Framework into this area of the curriculum.
