Understanding the world

Our programme supports children to develop:

  • knowledge about the natural world and how it works;
  • knowledge about the made world and how it works;
  • their learning about how to choose, and use, the right tool for a task;
  • their learning about computers, how to use them and what they can help us to do;
  • their skills on how to put together ideas about past and present and the links between them;
  • their learning about their locality and its special features; and
  • their learning about their own and other cultures.
