Reception children have been very busy exploring their immediate environment, including talking about animals and plants in their outdoor area, which is known as ‘Ted’s Den’.
Individuals have been curious about where they live. They have used google maps to find out more about our area and how far we live from Norwich.
Year one have been learning about animals and how they adapt to their region. This built on from work in reception when they studied the topic Around the world.
The year one classes have learnt about Antarctica and studied Greenland. They discussed how they thought people survived in cold climates. The children thought about the clothing and shelter required to keep people safe in cold weather. They focused on the Inuit people, their diet, modes of transport and hobbies. The children were intrigued and thought about the similarities and differences between their lifestyles and the lifestyles of the Inuit people.
Year two children have been locating significant landmarks in Norwich and comparing old and new landmarks. Work included using google maps.
