Street Detectives

Street Detectives!

This term we are learning all about our local area. We will be looking at human and physical features around Shirebrook and what life is like in our town.

For our express part of our topic we had to get creative so we invited Mr Smith from Bolsover Town Council to meet us on teams to show him our town planning documents. 

The children had a great time showing Mr Smith their work and enjoyed hearing all about what the council do and Mr Smith's job.

Launch Day

Year 2 were very busy on our launch day. We all went on a walk around Shirebrook and we spotted features in our local area, identifying if they were a human or physical feature.

We also did a traffic survey to see what types of transport we have in our local area!


For our launch day we walked around our local area and looked for human and physical features.

Year 2 have been learning all about how people, buildings and human features keep us safe in our locality. Shirebrook Police and Fire Station were kind enough to let us come and visit and the children had a fantastic time exploring and learning about how the fire service keep us safe.
