In the Good Shepherd EYFS, Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community. We value children’s wide-ranging experiences outside of school and strive to provide them with a wealth of experiences during their time in school to increase their knowledge and sense of the world around them – from visiting local parks and shops, libraries, theatres and farms to meeting important members of society such as police officers, nurses and firefighters. Our EYFS curriculum is founded on reading with children a broad selection of stories, non-fiction, rhymes and poems to help foster their understanding of our culturally, socially, technologically and ecologically diverse world. As well as building important knowledge, this extends their familiarity with words that support understanding across domains. Enriching and widening children’s vocabulary supports later reading comprehension.
“The school’s commitment towards developing pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural qualities is second to none.” OFSTED March 2014
