Year 2

Our Local Area – Autumn Term

Who lives in a place like this?

During our topic this term will use simple fieldwork and observational skills to study the geography of the school and its grounds and the key human and physical  features of the surrounding area.  We will also use aerial photographs and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks and basic human and physical features; devise a simple map; and use and construct basic symbols in a key. In History we will be comparing our local area now to how it was in the past.  We will also be researching how our school looked 100 years ago and compare the floorplans to see how they differ.  In D&T the children will be creating their own model village of Stockton Brook and Baddeley Green detailing all of the local amenities .In art the children will use pattern, texture, line, shape and form to create a an illustration of the ‘old pumping station on the Cauldon Canal.
