Local Explorers

A Year 5 class have fun exploring their local built area At a Primary School in Hackney, East London, thirty pupils from year five and their teachers discover that exploring their local built environment can be a great resource for learning. Through the topic of mapping, year five pupils are exploring their local environment and as a starting point for this study the class is visiting the Building Exploratory in Hackney to find out more about their area.

The Building Exploratory is an urban studies centre offering children the chance to learn about their borough through a series of large-scale models and maps. At the end of the session the pupils have an opportunity to draw their own maps of the area that surrounds their school.
