Nightingale Y1&2

smileyWelcome to Nightingale Class with Miss Pettit and Miss Lamb and Mrs Morris.smiley

Welcome back to a busy term in Nightingale class.

We are learning all about Our local area as our geography topic this term. So far we have been learning where Gamston is, locating Gamston on a map, in an atlas, on the globe and using Digimaps online. We know Gamston is in Nottinghamshire, in England, in the United Kingdom which is in the continent of Europe. We have learnt about the points of the compass, north, east, south and west. We have also been looking for human and physical geographical features in our local area.

 

We are excited to go on a walk around Gamston village. We will also be visiting Sherwood Forest to help us learn about the history of our local area. For more information on what we are learning about at the moment, please go to the knowledge organiser area of our page, where you will find knowledge organisers for Our local area and our science learning this term, all about Seasons and daily weather.
