Curriculum Projects

Our Curriculum Project for Autumn 2019

Urban Pioneers

Hop on the bus and take a trip downtown, where the lights are bright, and every street has a story to tell. This half term, we'll visit our local town to look at important buildings. We will photograph urban art including (hopefully!) graffiti, murals and statues. At school, we'll write an information leaflet about our town. Using digital mapping tools, we will then identify the streets and buildings that we saw. Then we will investigate cities around the world and find out how they have changed over time.
