This way or that way? Where should we go? Up to the local shops or down to the playing fields? Let’s learn about our local community, looking at houses old and new and finding out how our streets have changed since our mums and dads were young. Perhaps your granny or grandpa went to your school or maybe they worked in the baker’s shop? Ready to roll, Street Detectives? Get your clipboards and cameras… it’s time to start investigating!

Let’s travel back 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings.

Find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture.

Now open the doorway to ancient Egypt – who knows what treasures you will find?

See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls! Shoot a projectile with an archer’s aim! Head across the drawbridge, over the moat and up to the top of the tower... Then dig deep, deep down making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals who live underground. And finally… meet three little pigs who need your help to build a strong fortress. Inside its strong walls they’ll be safe from the big, bad wolf! No huffing and puffing will blow your fortress down!

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! Arrr... me hearties, – it’s a sailor’s life for me! Get your sea legs on, it’s time to sail the salty seas. Navigate, investigate and explore the world – just like Captain Cook. Thar’s land ahead, me buckos! Let’s get t’ship t’port.

Throw it, catch it, roll it, bounce it! BOING, BOING, BOING! Up and down and side to side, can you catch the bouncing ball?

Can you bounce too? Jump like a horse, leap like a frog or kick like a kangaroo! How many bounces can you do?

Now let’s relax… Breathe deeply and stretch those tired muscles. Yawn… All that bouncing must be making you tired!

Grab your coat and pooter – we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt! Sweep your nets in puddles and ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home. On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl!
