Understanding the World

People and Communities

Children talk about past and present events. They know about similarities and differences between themselves and among families, communities and traditions.

The World

Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur.


Children recognise that a range of technology is used in places such as homes and schools. They select and use technology for particular purposes.
