Our topic has been looking at our local area, Birkenhead. The children have looked at photographs of local landmarks such as Birknehead Park, Hamilton Square and Bidston Hill, learning about all their physical and human features. The children have also looked at aerial photographs and have made their own of our school. We will be taking a short walk of the local area, which will help us produce our own map in class. This will help the children gain a secure knowledge of the area before we move onto Birkenhead and its history.
