Understanding of the World
This covers the children’s developing knowledge and understanding of their environment, their families and other people, their community and traditions. Through this we aim to help the children become more aware of the world around them, both natural and man-made, observing changing patterns of the seasons, weather, similarities and differences in plants and animals etc. Opportunities will be provided to discover creatures, people, plants and objects in their natural environments and in real life situations. A range of technology will be introduced and used in a meaningful and purposeful way. They will take part in lots of practical activities and use a range of tools and materials safely.
