The World Around Us

Children are naturally curious about their environment and the world around them. Through a wide variety of activities and experiences in play, children begin to develop a range of skills and concepts such as observation and experimentation. They begin to use their senses to explore their immediate indoor and outdoor environment. In Holy Cross we give particular focus to the school surroundings and explore the environment with frequent walks around the neighbourhood and the nearby park in the Waterworks. We also endeavour to take the children on trips such as the farm, zoo and beach.
