where we live

Discussion in 'English' started by littlejenz40, Jun 28, 2011.

  1. Hi, I am starting my first teaching post in Year 4 in september and have been given the topic 'where we live' for Literacy. Does anyone know of any good story books to base the topic on which will lead into exploring their own local area? Have tried google with not much luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
     
  2. Turbulent Term of Tyke Tyler features the local area a lot. It mentions researching the history of the school and the town (one of the teachers has written a history book), local council elections, a nearby abandoned building etc. I haven't taught yr 4, so perhaps someone else can judge suitability in terms of reading levels.
     
  3. Thank you very much I will look into that - it sounds like exact;y what I am after.
