Here's some of the exciting things we will be experiencing and learning during our topic; Street Detectives. This year we may have to do some of our experiences virtually, but we will make the children's experiences as rich as possible whilst keeping them safe.
Grab a magnifying glass, put on your deerstalker and change your name to Sherlock because we’re going to become street detectives!
This term, we’ll follow a route around our local streets and take pictures of the buildings, businesses and plants we can see. Talking to residents about the area will help us understand how the local community could be improved. We’ll learn nursery rhymes, write poetry and create persuasive adverts. Looking at photographs will help us to spot any similarities and differences between the houses and shops of today and the past.
We’ll find out about the history of our school and talk to former pupils about their experiences. We’ll also study and draw maps, create a model of a local building, draw portraits of the people we have met and look at the work of urban artists.
At the end of our project, we’ll design posters to advertise a ‘Big spring clean’ around school before cleaning and tidying the school grounds.
