Exploring Our Community

Overview

In this lesson pupils will research what is meant by the word ‘community’. Pupils will think about who lives in their area and what services and facilities there are for their community. They will discuss what they like and dislike about their area, suggesting things that could be improved.

Pupils will reflect on these conversations by producing a piece of art that maps what they see as the features of their community. During school time or as a homework activity, they will be encouraged to further explore their neighbourhood through completing a community treasure hunt.
