Looking at Our Locality
On a blustery and wet Tuesday afternoon, we managed to brave the wind and rain to take a trip around Yardley Hastings village. The aim of the walk was to familiarise ourselves with our surroundings, which links into our topic ‘Our Locality’. In particular we were looking for human and physical features. We started off by exploring the Pocket Park where we discovered many physical features, in particular the roaring sound of the wind through the trees. We used a music app called Acapella to record this and other sounds so that we could play them back on our return to school. We then ventured on through the village to the church where the children took the opportunity to sketch a number of different human features. The children had a fabulous time getting to know their local area and showed a good understanding of both human and physical features.
