This term we are going to be Street Detectives but where shall we start? This way or that? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields? This term we will be learning all 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. We will make maps and plans of the streets around us, planning our routes and seeing what we can find. We will be finding out how to write instructions, directions, adverts and learn rhymes all about our community from different times. Are you ready to be a Street Detective? Get your clipboards and cameras ready... it's time to start investigating!
Please find below some helpful resources about our topic that you and your children can explore together before the term starts...

Here is a sneak peak at some of the things we have been working on over the last half term whilst working on the topic of Street Detectives. We have had so much fun exploring the history of Whitstone and seeing how it has changed of the years, as well as having a go at making a mini Whitstone of our very own!
