Understanding of the World
Understanding of the world 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.
|ELG 13||People and communities: Children talk about past and present events in their
own lives and in the lives of family members. They know that other children do
not always enjoy the same things, and are sensitive to this. They know about
similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families,
communities and traditions.
|ELG 14||The world: Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places,
objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own
immediate environment and how environments might vary from one another.
They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things
occur, and talk about changes.
|ELG 15||Technology: Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such
as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particular purposes.
