All children can explain connections and relationships between people and the world in which we live.
Exploring the local area builds a sense of belonging and familiarity which helps the children to be able to make comparisons with contrasting localities and people, at a later stage. Children share the wealth of cultures within the Cherry Tree Family and welcome visitors from the local community.
Children use maps, globes, photographs, videos and many other sources of information to learn about contrasting localities to the environment they live in. This is an opportunity for the children to discover more about the huge variety in physical landscapes, climates and human settlements around the world. We evaluate patterns of behaviour and how humans interact with the planet in different settings. Children make comparisons and connections within the world in which we live.
Quotes from the children: ‘I like learning about different places and there are so many places that so many people don’t know about’.
