Knowledge and Understanding the World
Children are encouraged to explore the world around them. Through planned and spontaneous activities. The learning environment encourages children to explore and ask questions about the world around them. We celebrate a range of festivals which reflect the traditions of both staff and children. We encourage children to share and find out about their own families of others within the setting. We promote equal opportunities, this is reflected through books, pictures and play materials. Implementation examples: we celebrate festivals for example; Christmas, Eid, Hanukkah and Chinese New Year. We have our own growing area and a bug hotel. We often go on bug hunts!| We have been on visits to a local park and church. Children have access to a range of natural materials. Role play and small world play materials are available both inside and outside.
