This half term, the children in class 6 have been looking at Buildings as their theme. They have learnt about the history of buildings; how they have changed through time, in Geography they have maps and famous landmark buildings around the world and address and postcodes, and in Science, they explored materials; properties, strength and flexibility and learnt about the uses and dangers of electricity.
Yesterday, the children put their hats, scarves and gloves on and went on a lovely walk to Broughton village to look at different types of buildings in the local area. They spent time watching the builders on the nearby new builds, saw detached and semi-detached houses, flats, a church and the old school room! The children thoroughly enjoyed their walk; particularly trying to spot the age of different houses, by looking at their plaques, and the names of them
