Understanding the World

 

The wonderful grounds around Wyburns give the children the best of opportunities to explore the world around them. The large outdoor classroom, sensory garden and woodland environment, allow the children plenty of opportunities to explore, experiment and notice the nature around them and the changing seasons. 

 

In Early Years we explore a range of cultures and religions, looking at festivals such as Diwali and Chinese New Year. The children enjoy the rich diversity of the world around them and learn to appreciate the differences and similarities between themselves and others. 

 

ELG 13            People and Communities    

Children talk about past and present events in their own lives and in the lives of family members. They know that other children don’t always enjoy the same things, and are sensitive to this. They know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families, communities and traditions.

 

ELG 14            The World                              

Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.

 

ELG 15            Technology                             

Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particular purposes.
