In this area we encourage questioning, investigating and fascination in the world around us. These are the foundations for Science, History, Geography, RE, and Computing. Our Reception children are wonderfully curious and enjoy a range of exciting things indoors and out, exploring , investigating and talking about what we have been doing. Where possible, we make links with our other experiences.
What parents can do to help at home:
-Talk about EVERYTHING!
-Show curiosity yourself e.g. when visiting somewhere new
-Follow and develop your child’s interests in the world- places, animals, plants, people…
-Encourage older family members to talk about their past and help your child to find out a little family history
-Look at maps, information leaflets and books and talk about them
-Talk about interesting programmes on TV to develop your child’s interests and understanding
