This term Year 5 are looking at our local area, Hindhead, in our Topic learning.  Mrs.Gregory

On the 29th and 30th of September, Year 5 explored the rural and urban area of Hindhead, to discover the differences and similarities between sounds, animal life, different uses of the land, business, evidence of historical changes, local legends and stories.

We also looked at how buildings have changed use and how Hindhead’s residential areas have expanded and in particular the impact the Hindhead Tunnel has had on the area and any changes that have taken place as a result of the changes in traffic.

Year 5 found out about notable people who have lived in the area and why they are still remembered today.

The Year 5 children enjoyed their time out in our local area, we were especially impressed with the level of commitment shown by all to their learning.
