Understanding the world
This area has three goals:
- Past and Present
- People, Culture & Communities
- The Natural World
This area of the curriculum is concerned with developing children’s knowledge and understanding of their environment, other people and features of man-made and the natural world. It provides the foundation for history, religious education, geography, science and technological learning. The children will be given the opportunity to experiment, explore and investigate. They will be encouraged to develop reasoning skills and an ability to make predictions. They will learn about the importance of online safety, how to access programmes and tools on the computers and use programmable toys.
