Walk around our local area

Date: 20th Oct 2015 @ 3:47pm

Today we went on a class walk around our local area. On our walk, we had to look out for different buildings and landmarks and where they were located. We found lots of landmarks including the church, Harley Green Care Home, the post box, Fiddlers Lane Primary School, a garage, The Bakers Oven, a card shop and lots more exciting place. 

When we got to the library, we listened really carefully to see what we could hear and wrote these down on our observation sheet. We heard lots of noises including cars, birds and chatting. 

On our way back to school, we looked carefully at the street signs and wrote down all the different streets we passed. This was very exciting and we spotted lots of signs including Cutnook Lane  - where our school is!

In the afternoon,  Miss Woolloff mapped our walk and we added the landmarks we had seen by drawing them in the correct place. We then learnt how to make a key so that other people would understand what our pictures meant and read our maps.

We really enjoyed our day and have learnt lots about our local area. smiley
