The World Around Us

THE WORLD AROUND US AT FOUNDATION STAGE

Children are interested and curious about what is happening in the world around them. Before starting school, they will have had opportunities to explore their world in the home, the pre-school setting and the local area. These pre-school experiences should be built on, with the children’s natural curiosity being fostered.

Children should have opportunities to use their senses in order to develop their powers of observation, to be able to sort and classify, explore, predict, experiment, compare, plan, carry out and review their work.

Eco-Schools

Eco-schools is an international programme for environmental education and management, which aims to raise students' awareness of sustainable development issues through classroom study as well as school and community action.  With the emphasis placed on a democratic and participatory approach, the programme encourages children and youth to take an active role in how their school can be run for the benefit of the environment.
