King Edward Primary School and Nursery Excitement + Determination = Success

Understanding the World

Understanding the World is a specific area of our Curriculum.


This area includes:

  • Past and Present (History)
  • People, Culture and Communities (Geography)
  • The Natural World (Science)


These play a large role of deepening children's knowledge and understanding of their environment, other people and the natural real life world.


At King Edward, these sessions are delivered through Continuous Provision and guided activities weekly. Forest School sessions are delivered weekly to provide activities for children to explore and understand their natural environment. Nursery provided activities for children to investigate and explore through scientific curiosity.
