Understanding the World

Understanding the world in early years

In Early years UW is a big part of our curriculum and in a lot of ways is the glue that holds a lot of our subjects together. Through the year we teach many elements from seasons, animals, the environment around us, families, ourselves and the bigger world. Find below some lessons taken from the Oak Academy to support your child through summer. I have also added a couple of videos of activities we have completed through the year in school.
