Understanding the World

We teach children about the world in which they live, other people and communities and the role of technology. Children will be given opportunities to make sense of the world around them and develop the knowledge and vocabulary needed to enable them to explain their thinking.

The children will be taught about diversity, learning about other cultures, traditions and families. They will find out about the roles of important members of our society and the impact they have on our lives.

They will learn about the natural world around them, deepening their understanding of important processes such as the seasons and changing states of matter.
