From little acorns, big oaks grow!
The World Around Us
Our World Around Us coordinator is Mrs. E McAtamney
In this area of learning, children investigate the world in which they live locally, nationally and in a global context. This investigation is facilitated through the study of topics which contain elements of Geography, History, Science and Technology. Children are naturally curious and inquisitive and can direct their learning based on their own experiences and interests during topic planning stages. In each topic, children develop their investigative science skills to enable them to develop a deeper level of understanding of the world in which they live.
We are very lucky to be in the fortunate position of having expansive school grounds. Our setting has ample playground and outdoor space, a large nature garden, pond, play trail, outdoor classroom, greenhouse and access to green spaces. These allow all classes to experience outdoor learning using natural resources all year round.
