The World Around Us

World Around Us

In line with the NI curriculum, children study History, Geography and Science through themes and topics which focus on "Connected Learning".  Our "World Around Us" topics focus particularly on developing children's interests in their world through a questioning and research-based approach.  The purpose of learning about the World around Us provides opportunities for children to develop:


  • an awareness of themselves and their place in the world, as well as of other places, cultures and the environment

  • an appreciation of the beauty and wonder of the world

  • an awareness of Information and Communication Technology and its impact on society and the world around them
