Monitoring the Quality of Education in EYFS - Understanding the World
Awarded an OBE for Services to Education, Clive Davies has designed and built these schemes around progression and enquiry. Focus Education resources are of the highest educational quality.
Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community. The frequency and range of childrenâ€™s personal experiences increases their knowledge and sense of the world around them â€“ from visiting parks, libraries and museums to meeting important members of society such as police officers, nurses and firefighters. In addition, listening to a broad selection of stories, non-fiction, rhymes and poems will foster their understanding of our culturally, socially, technologically and ecologically diverse world. As well as building important knowledge, this extends their familiarity with words that support understanding across domains. Enriching and widening childrenâ€™s vocabulary will support later reading comprehension.
