Year 1 get a different view of Croydon

Elmhurst School for Boys

5th February 2015

Last Wednesday, Year 1 visited Addington Hills as part of their topic work on Croydon.

They have enjoyed learning about physical and man made features and looking at the geography of Croydon. Taking the boys on a field trip like this helps them to understand that Croydon borough is a large area with a variety of different land use and lots of hills - it's not just a shopping area!

The boys ran up and down the hills and learned about valleys, before looking at the Croydon skyline from the viewfinder at the top of Addington Hills. They were able to see the Crystal Palace tower and could just make out the skyline of the city of London. practical experiences like this help Year 1 to understand scale and size in a way that isn't possible in the classroom.

Year 1 returned to school and produced their own skyline views, cutting out building shapes and sticking them to black card, before using pastels to create a sunset effect. They then removed the building shapes, revealing striking images of the Croydon skyline.

View some of Year 1’s artwork and photos of the Croydon skyline here.
