This week Year 1 children have been on the ‘Whitestone Walk’. They had great fun completing a noticing quiz which helped them identify trees, different buildings and allowed them to apply their maths skills.
On their journey they stopped off at Whitestone Spar and had the real life experience of paying for a chosen treat, some children receiving change. Whitestone Spar were also kind enough to give all of the children a free bag of fruit and bottle of water to promote healthy eating.
Whilst waiting the children had time to complete a traffic survey and were able to compare which types of transport were used the most and least.
This experience has been so enriching for the children and it has gone on to produce some great writing!
