Deeping St Nicholas - The Geography of where I live


We are looking at the physical and human geography of Deeping St Nicholas and writing about and making models of feature buildings, making maps and talking about the geographical features we see on our journey to school. We will also be looking at where we live in the world and where Deeping St Nicholas is on a Map of the UK and naming the countries in the UK. we will use photographs, maps, atlases and Google Earth to enhance and deepen our learning.

Our literacy will be around the books Panny's world, On the way home, Animal Homes and Homes around the world - a mixture of fiction and non fiction books. We will be learning new vocabulary as well as using that vocabulary to write non chronological reports and plan and write stories. 

In Maths both Year 1s and 2s are working on Place Value and  counting and the EYFS children are working on counting objects and actions and comparing numbers and amounts of objects.

Our science learning is about Growing plants, identifying the parts of plants and the changes that happen when a plant grows as well as doing experiments to see what a plant needs to grow well. We will also be taking care of the plants we are growing in our outside environment and noting changes while we water and care for them everyday. 

In Technology we are learning joining techniques and learning about using tools correctly and competently and problem solving in our making. In Art we are learning about paint, using brushes, storing and cleaning brushes and pallattes, colour mixing and exploring different kinds of paints.

In addition we will be developing a range of skills through our outside woodland learning area, using and applying all the learning that happens in school in a different environment. Skills such as - oracy skills, performing skills, science learning, making and problem solving skills, physical skills and above all continuing to develop the children's characteristics of effective learning through play.
