Knowledge and Understanding of the World

Knowledge and understanding of the world

This aspect of learning covers a wide range of topics including science, geography and history. There is lots you can do at home around this and we will include ideas in the weekly plans. 

Children often have their own interests like dinosaurs and wild animals so this is a good way to encourage them to come up with their own projects. 


Visit the world from your home - webcams and live streams

As we are restricted in getting out and doing things, many places are doing live streams / web cams. For wildlife this means a much better view than we would normally get.
