‘Our Community’ in Year One

This week, the children in Year One have been very interested in sharing and expanding their knowledge of the geographical features of Luton. Children had an introduction to fieldwork as they visited the school grounds and came up with ideas for improvements; suggestions included wildlife areas, a pond and more climbing equipment. They have been able to identify key buildings and transport networks around town and describe what they see on their way to school, making and labelling simple maps. We also looked at some old photographs of Luton and were surprised to see that there used to be trams in the town centre!
