When you see an activity labelled with the ‘Understanding the world’ icon on CBeebies, it means that it can help your child to develop their understanding of people, places, science or nature.
This learning area can include exploring, investigating, using computers, discovering the living world, people and nature around them, experiencing other cultures and beliefs and thinking about different life events.
Children love to ask “why?” as they begin to work out the reasons for things changing, seasons, weather and animal behaviour. They are working out connections and differences between people and the environment and how they fit into it.
They enjoy finding out about their own family history and how their family celebrates. This encourages their natural sense of wonder and curiosity about the world around us.
