Learning Project - to be done throughout the week: Where do you live?

The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the area in which they live. Learning may focus on your local area, famous people, key landmarks and links to your city.


To develop knowledge of the location of significant places:

Ask your child to look at where they live. What can they see outside the window in the front of their house? At the back of their house? What could they find near them? Find a map and see if they can find Corby. Do they know the name of their street? Can they create a street sign with their street name?


My address: Support your child to find out your address. Can they find the number on your door? Can they write the number in digits and words?

Ask them to try writing the number using crayons and paint. Can they write a postcard or letter to a teacher at school? They could tell their teacher about where they live and things about their local area.


My house: Discuss with your child what their house looks like inside and outside? How many bedrooms does it have? Who has the biggest bedroom? Who has the smallest? Ask them to look outside their window and see if they can spot a house different to their own. Can they draw their house? How many windows at the front? How many windows at the back? Do you have one door or two? In a special bag - could you (with adult support) place things that make it your home? Why would you pick those items?


Draw a picture of your street. Support your child to take a look at the street and buildings around where they live. Encourage them to think about the shape of the buildings. Shape hunt: Take your child on a shape hunt around their house and garden. Look at the different shapes of the windows, doors, and houses. Can they name them? Are they 2D or 3D shapes? Ask them to create a picture of their house or street.


Name the shape: Place some 2D or 3D shapes into a bag and play the game ‘Can you name the shape?’ You will need a partner to play this game. One partner has a shape from the shape bag and they stand back to back. The partner with the shape describes it to their partner who has to try and draw it.

How many do you know?


Find you house on ‘Google maps’. Search for your house on the street? Can you find Corby, Exeter – a learning community, Northamptonshire, or your home country


Compass: Make a compass. Do you know what the different compass points mean? Can you label the points?


Design a house - Can you make a model of your house and a cottage?


Create a song about ‘Where you live’ - Can you add your address in your song?
