Miss Bailey’s Group -
So far in topic, we have looked at our local area, the coast and the rainforest. Today we are going to find out more about what is it like to live in a dry place. Before we think about places that are different to where we live, I’d like you to first think about our towns and cities. What can you see? What buildings are there? What are the buildings made of?
The buildings in England are made of brick, steel, concrete, wood and glass. Steel helps the buildings to be strong, the wood helps keep the buildings stable because it expands and contracts in hot and cold weather, the brick and concrete protect people from the cold rainy weather and the glass lets light into the building.
Go through the PowerPoint to compare our buildings to those in hotter, drier places and read the text about Grace with the photographs towards the end Now, complete the activity sheet questions.
