Understanding the World Project

Understanding the World with Jude Twani
Understanding the World (UtW) is an exciting area of learning that is not included in the end of year assessment of a good level of development, yet it is a critical aspect of children’s learning. It provides the context for learning in all other areas, an opportunity to develop meaningful vocabulary and taps into children’s innate curiosity. This interactive course will explore how the indoor, outdoor and local environments can be an effective ‘teacher’ of UtW. There will be ideas to work on as an EYFS team and examples of practice from other settings. The first full day of training will be thought provoking and provide a wealth of ideas to inform an action plan. A 30 minute online consultation half way between days 1 and 2 will support your development. The second day will look more closely at the early learning goals and involve some moderation of these followed by presentations by each setting of what they have achieved.
