"To be the best that we can be"


Geography 2019-2020
At Ightenhill Primary School we aim to deliver a high-quality education that inspires pupil's curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
In Reception, we enjoy going for walks to our local park. During our walk to the park we look at our local area and discuss the features or our immediate environment. We like to go and visit the same tree every time we go so that we can make observations of the animals and plants and talk about changes from one season to another.

Our whole school topic for this term is 'What a Waste'.


Today, we had a visit from Sarah Roberts, who is the author of the book 'Somebody Swallowed Stanley'. This is a lovely story about sea animals but it also has a very important environmental message about plastic pollution. Sarah Roberts talked to the children about why it is important to look after our oceans and how we can help.
