Understanding the World
Looking at the world around them helps young children to develop lively and enquiring minds.
Children use their senses to explore and discover the world around them, developing an understanding of the natural environment and how we can care for it.
Children develop an understanding of their family and their family history, noticing differences between their family and others.
They use their wide range of vocabulary to talk about what they have seen and experienced and how this may vary from what others have.
Children also begin to understand the life cycle of animals and plants and the impact we as humans have on them.
