Understanding the World

Understanding the World


Understanding the World (UW) is one of the four specific areas of learning in the EYFS framework. It involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology, and the environment.

Winter Wonderland - We started the lesson by drinking hot chocolate while listening to a winter story. We discussed as a class how we find it easy to find food and drink throughout the winter season but for some animals they find it difficult. The children made bird feeders which they placed outside in a safe spot for the birds to eat..

What is Winter? 


When you hear the word Winter what does it make you feel?

"It makes me feel cold"


"In Winter my daddy plays in the snow with me. He throws snowballs"


How does your body tell you it is cold outside?

"I can see my breath"

"Body is cold"

"Sometimes my fingers and toes go cold"


How do you keep warm in the Winter season?

"I put on my coat to keep warm"

"My scarf is red, red is my favourite colour"

"I have gloves"

This afternoon, EYFS went on an Autumn walk around the school field. We found lots of Autumn treasures including leaves, sticks and berries. Back in class we observed and discussed the different shapes, colours and sizes of the items we found 🍁🍂
