Understanding the World

Understanding the World

This is made up of the following aspects:

People and Communities: This is about how children begin to know about their own and other people’s cultures in order to understand and celebrate the similarities and differences between them in a diverse society.

The World: This is about the children becoming aware and interested in the natural world and find out about their local area, knowing what they like and dislike about it.

It also provides children with many opportunities to explore and investigate objects, materials and their properties, learn about change over time and patterns, similarities and differences, and question why things happen and how things work.

ICT: This is about how children find out about and learn how to use appropriate information technology such as computers and programmable toys that support their learning.
