If we can dream it ... we can do it!


Today we are beginning our new geography unit. The unit is called 'Where we Live'. 

In Year 1 the children begin by looking at the geography that is familiar and close to home. This lesson looks at our village of Grimethorpe and places of interest that are here or close to Grimethorpe.  The following slides will take you through the learning before completing the activity. 

Now use Google Maps to find out about our local area. You can use the sheet if you want or you can just record your findings in your work book. I want you to see if you can find the following things. 



I challenge you to use Travelling Ted to complete a map of your journey to school. Can you add the places of interest that you pass on the way? 

Remember to email your work to me at so that I can give you feedback and I can also add it to our gallery.
