Understanding the World
Understanding the World (UW) 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 through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology, and the environment.
In FS2, we have looked at how we can care for our environment. We read the story of the Messy Magpie and helped her to sort the objects into different piles! We talked about what recycling is and how we can help our world. We had the opportunity to do junk modelling and to recycle the objects into new things! We also looked at the life cycle of a pumpkin and were able to make our own cycle independently. We have looked at Handa's Surprise and talked about what is similar and different from where we live.
