Synopsis

Schools by Jeff Stanfield

This absorbing book is perfect for enabling young readers to find out all about the world around them in their local area and at the same time develop skills of geographical enquiry. From travelling to school, school buildings, the work that adults do at school, and what different rooms in a school are used for, to how a school is made safe, it is packed with photographs of typical features and asks many questions to develop readers' powers of observation. It also includes a range of 'detective activities' to further encourage readers' interest and also as a useful resource for teachers. OUR LOCAL ENVIRONMENT series was previously published as SEE FOR YOURSELF.
