Learning Project - to be done throughout the week: Where do you live?

 The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the area in which they live. Learning may focus on your local area, famous people, key landmarks and links to the village.

To develop knowledge of the location of significant places:

Ask your child to look at where they live. What can they see outside the window in the front of their house? At the back of their house? What could they find near them? Find a map and see if they can find Nottingham, Worksop, Langold. Do they know the name of their street? Can they create a street sign with their street name?


My address:  Support your child to find out your address. Can they find the number on your door? Can they write the number in digits and words?  Ask them to try writing the number using crayons, paint and water and a paint brush in the garden.

Can they write a postcard or letter to a teacher at school? They could tell their teacher about where they live and things about their local area.


My house:  Discuss with your child what their house looks like inside and outside? How many bedrooms does it have? Who has the biggest bedroom? Who has the smallest? Ask them to look outside their window and see if they can spot a house different to their own.

Can they draw their house? How many windows at the front? How many windows at the back? Do you have one door or two? In a special bag - could you (with adult support) place things that make it your home? Why would you pick those items?

Draw a picture of your street. Support your child to take a look at the street and buildings around where they live. Encourage them to think about the shape of the buildings.


Shape hunt: Take your child on a shape hunt around their house and garden. Look at the different shapes of the windows, doors, and houses. Can they name them? Are they 2D or 3D shapes?

Ask them to create a picture of their house or street.

Name the shape: Place some 2D or 3D shapes into a bag and play the game ‘Can you name the shape?’ You will need a partner to play this game. One partner has a shape from the shape bag and they stand back to back. The partner with the shape describes it to their partner who has to try and draw it.How many do you know?


Find you house on ‘Google maps’.

Search for your house on the street? Can you find Langold, Worksop, Nottingham, Sherwood Forest, Doncaster etc

Compass: Make a compass. Do you know what the different compass points mean? Can you label the points?


Create a passport: create an individual passport to show your own information about where you live. Discuss the use of a Passport. What is a passport? What information does it contain? What does a passport allow you to do?  Can you find a real life passport? Do you have one? 

Flag: Below is the Birmingham flag. What do you think the flag represents? Can you design your own flag for your local area? What could you add? What would they mean to you?

Langold Lake  can you find out about the lake and make an information leaflet about it.

Create a song about ‘Where you live’ - Can you add your address in your song?

Can you find the UK on the map? Can you name the countries? Why do you think the Countries begin with a capital letter? This song may help.
