This week’s homework is Talk Time and is due in on Wednesday 15 June 2011.
I can talk about ‘old things’ in my community.
As an introduction to our topic this term, I want you to discuss the history of your community. ‘Old things’ can be anything that is not new, but if you’re struggling to come up with something, here are some suggestions:
- Older buildings in the local area. How do they compare with the modern ones?
- Older people in the community. Our elders can tell us a lot about what our community looked like before we were around. Why not ask someone you know who is older than you what your local environment looked like before you were around?
- Why not take a trip to the local library to look at some pictures of what your local community used to look like?
We will be learning about your local community this week, so make sure you find out some interesting facts!
