Understanding the World
Understanding the World relates to children’s everyday lives, their homes, families, other people, the local environment and community, and the wider world. There are three main areas in this area of learning -
- The World
- People & Community
Through different types of play, active, and experiential learning opportunities as well as practical activities, children will be provided with meaningful experiences. These will stimulate their senses as well as encourage them to ask questions, explore and wonder at their environment. They will undertake investigations that engage their interests, and develop awareness of the beliefs and views of others.
The curriculum reflects a belief in children’s learning as a process of revisiting and building on previous experiences, skills, knowledge and understanding as children develop.
