Group 1 started with their first unit of the Early Years Curriculum (IEYC): The World Around Us, through which children will be exploring our environment and develop knowledge and understanding beyond that related to their own nationality and identity. In every unit of IEYC also personal goals and goals of international mindedness are included, for example adaptability, communication, enquiry and respect. Besides that we have language and math activities.
