Herbert Strutt Primary School

We Care, Challenge, Achieve and Open Minds

EXPLORE: Geographers

There will be displays along the corridor from Y1 to Y6. They will include classwork but also work children choose to do for homework, about places and environmental issues they are interested in but maybe are not studying. Classes will be able to walk along the corridor, 'through' the world and be immersed in the language and the environments.
