Autumn 1 - Street Detectives

This half term our learning journey is

Street Detectives


Are you ready to investigate?

Grab a magnifying glass because we're going to become street detectives! 


This half term, we'll follow a route around our local streets and take pictures of buildings, businesses and plants we can see. We'll find out about the history of landmarks in St Albans City and use these buildings as inspiration for our poetry writing. Looking at photographs will help us to spot any similarities and differences between the buildings of today and the past. After reading the Three Little Pigs we will re-write the story and use our knowledge of materials to construct different houses for the pigs. Will they withstand the wolf's huff and puff? We'll also study and draw maps and write algorithms to direct one another around a map. After observing the Rose Window in St Albans Cathedral we will create our own stained glass inspired artwork. At the end of our half term we'll design posters to encourage others to look after the local environment and display these in Fleetville Park and nearby places. See if you can spot some!
