Understanding the World

This area of learning focuses on helping children learn about the world around them.  It combines early learning within the traditional subjects of History, Science, Geography, R.E. and Computing.  Interesting teaching activities will help children to: 

  • explore and find out about the world around them, asking questions about it;
  • build with different materials, know about everyday technology and learn what it is used for;
  • find out about past events in their lives and their families' lives;
  • find out about different cultures and beliefs.
