Year 2 Community Walk

Year 2 children have begun their new topic, 'Street Detectives'.

As part of this, the children went on a community walk around the local area.

Children were encouraged to think about:

  • how the land has been used
  • what type of buildings and street furniture they can see around them


The children had previously created a map of the area, using a key to identify land use and they were able to use this on the walk.

We took photos of some of the things we saw in the local area.


You could look at the local area around you, spotting how the land has been used. Are there lots of houses or shops? Are there any gardens, parks or green spaces?
