How parents can help Street Detectives
Help your child prepare for their project
Become street detectives and explore your local community. Why not visit a local museum to see what the local area
was like in days gone by? You could also look up at the roofs of local buildings to spot interesting carvings and chimney
shapes. Alternatively, read the book A Street Through Time by Steve Noon together to see how one street has changed
over thousands of years.
