Learning By Topic KS1: Transport and Geography

Explore how the public transport in your local community and/or nearest town centre provides for people with disabilities.

Find a map of your local area, can you locate or add/plot bus stops, train stations, cycling paths, taxi ranks etc. – there might even be an airport or heliport close to you!

You need to give directions to a friend who is visiting you. They are at your nearest supermarket. Will they walk or drive? Write or voice record the directions, thinking about right and left hand turns and naming roads. Perhaps you will voice record the directions while you are walking/being driven yourself. Extension: Children could start using the directions of north, south, east, west, north east etc,
