Understanding The World

Understanding the World


Understanding the world 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. The frequency and range of children’s personal experiences increases their knowledge and sense of the world around them – from visiting parks, libraries and museums to meeting important members of society such as police officers, nurses and firefighters. In addition, listening to a broad selection of stories, non-fiction, rhymes and poems will foster their understanding of our culturally, socially, technologically and ecologically diverse world. As well as building important knowledge, this extends their familiarity with words that support understanding across domains. Enriching and widening children’s vocabulary will support later reading comprehension


This term our topic is 'Super me, Super you!' We will be looking at real life superheroes and how they help us. Exploring and speaking to people in different roles e.g. nurses, police. We will be building cities through small world as well as looking at the environment in which we live in and identifying what changes we can see.
