"To be the best that we can be"

Geography

Geography 2019-2020
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 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.

Year 1 - The Far Away Fairies

 

In Miss Berry’s class we have had some special visitors. The Fairies appeared in our classrooms after the Christmas holidays and have been getting up to mischief since. They like to write us letters asking us to find out more about the world we live in. We have had lots of fun answering their questions and bringing things in to show them. The Far Away Fairies love to travel so we have shown them all the different places we have been around the UK.

3D Model Building

 

As part of Year 5's geography topic, the children have been making 3D bird’s-eye models of Ightenhill Park. The afternoon was a lot of fun and there was a lot of creativity and teamwork on display.
