Science at John Clifford School is about developing children’s ideas and inquisitive nature to enable them to make sense of the world in which they live. We aim to do this through active learning and engagement, investigation and developing scientific using and applying skills. 


We are extremely fortunate to have a great outdoor environment both within the school grounds and locally and aim to offer our children exciting scientific opportunities using these great natural resources.


Each year group teaches science through their topic each half term. You can find an overview of our science curriculum below.

Science in EYFS


Science in EYFS at John Clifford is covered in the ‘Understanding the world’ part of the EYFS curriculum. It is introduced by indirectly giving children the opportunity to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
