World Around Us

The World Around Us (WAU) at Foundation Stage

Children are interested and curious about what is happening in the world around them. Before starting school, they will have had opportunities to explore their world in the home, the pre-school setting and the local area. These pre-school experiences should be built on, with the children’s natural curiosity being fostered.

Children should have opportunities to use their senses in order to develop their powers of observation, to be able to sort and classify, explore, predict, experiment, compare, plan, carry out and review their work.
