Year 1 walk around Parkstone

The year one children had a lovely time on their walk around Parkstone as part of their Geography learning this week.  They were able to identify; terraced houses, semi-detached houses. detached houses, a bungalow and flats.  They also found local areas of interest, including Alexandra Park, St. Osmund's Church, The Grasshopper and Tesco (which they were very excited about).  They were able to understand that this is their local area and other local areas are different.
