Science and Technology The World Around Us

Science and Technology: Progression Guidance

In the Northern Ireland Curriculum Geography, History, and Science and Technology are the contributory elements that form an Area of Learning called The World Around Us. All three are statutory and need to be approached from their own unique perspective; pupils should have broad and balanced experiences in all.

Use this guidance to gain greater confidence in whole school planning which ensures progress in children's learning. For more detailed guidance on progression of these strands at Foundation Stage, see Section 6. For guidance on the development of skills, see section 5.
