Where we live

In our first lesson we learnt all about compass points. We used a compass to find where North is in our classroom and then played a game using the compass points, North, South, East and West. 



In our next lesson we learnt about the difference between a village, town and city. We found out that Grimethorpe is a village in the town of Barnsley. The closest city to us is Sheffield. 

Next we learnt about how a map helps us find our destination. We looked at a map of Grimethorpe and found our school, Asda and the park. We found out that different keys are used to help people identify places on a map. 

We mapped the route we would take to get from Asda to our school. 

There a many different types of homes. Today we learnt about detached, semi- detached, flats, terraced, cottage and caravan. What type of home do you live in?
