Street Detectives

This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields?

Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mums and dads were young. Perhaps your granny or grandpa went to your school or maybe they worked in the baker’s shop? Make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes.


What can you see? What can we find? Whereabouts do you live? Do you know your address?

Find out how to write instructions, directions, adverts and learn rhymes all about our community from different times. When the Lord Mayor writes and asks us to help make our street a better place, it’s time to get your thinking caps on and paint brushes at the ready!



Today we had a mystery visitor in our classroom. They had left clues around school to help us work out who it was. We learnt how to be detectives and look out for clues and how to be careful around red herrings! Take a look at some of the pictures taken.

What will we be learning about this term?
