Knockmore Primary School

World Around Us


The World Around Us constitutes a vital Area of Learning within the primary curriculum, fostering children's innate curiosity and addressing their inquiries about the world through the lenses of Geography, History, and Science and Technology.

Teachers are tasked with facilitating children's acquisition of knowledge, understanding, and skills across four interrelated strands:

  1. Interdependence
  2. Place
  3. Movement and Energy
  4. Change Over Time

Embracing an inquiry-based methodology, The World Around Us encourages active exploration and discovery. It is essential for children to engage in diverse and balanced experiences encompassing the three statutory contributory elements of Geography, History, and Science and Technology.
