This half term in Year 1, we have been learning about our local area. We looked at where Sheffield is on a map and then where Gleadless Valley is in Sheffield. We produced a tally chart and pictogram to show the different ways that we get to school, we found out that the majority of children in Year 1 walk to school. We then thought about how to keep safe as pedestrians. We went out into the local area to carry out a traffic survey. Blackstock Road was very busy with lots of cars so it is good job we know how to keep ourselves safe! We have begun reading Mrs Armitage on wheels by Quentin Blake, from this we have been doing lots of lovely artwork like sketching bicycles and printing with wheels.
