Year 1

We become voyagers and pioneers as part of our Geographical learning and depending on the interests of the children we may become pirates, explorers or scientists. We teach map skills and learn new vocabulary to name basic natural and man-made geographical features. We begin by looking at our local environment and its features then expand out to learn about other countries, continents and seas and the wealth of features, animals and plants that live together on Earth. Children will learn to find information from non-fiction books and begin to research simple facts for themselves about places, buildings and animals. They will then combine their Literacy, ICT or creative skills to report and represent their learning in their own chosen ways.
