This half term our topic is ‘The Place Where I Live’ which will focus mainly on the history of Preston. We are lucky enough to be having a visit from a local historian to tell us all about where the soldiers lived in Preston and he has even picked out some of the roads where our children live! We will also be taking a trip to our local park looking at both the history and focusing on some geographical aspects to help us create our own ariel maps. We will also be looking at how the cotton mills have played a big part in Preston’s history. If anyone has any historical information, objects or Grandparents that would like to come in and share what Preston was like a long time ago they are welcome to do so, just contact me on Dojo.
I will be sending home fridge words which link to our topic, please put these up at home and discuss their meanings with your child. These can also be found on Dojo.
