EYFS Understanding the World

Understanding the world 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. We aim to foster their understanding of our
culturally, socially, technologically and ecologically diverse world through listening to a broad selection
of stories, non-fiction, rhymes and poems
 
Children in EYFS follow some areas of Development Matters through topics that link to National Curriculum subjects, taught in Year 1 and Year 2.
