How well do you know your neighbourhood?
How well do you know your street?
Make a note of the things you discover
And the interesting people you meet.

Getting Started:

Before you leave the house have a bit of a chat about what you’re going to be looking out for.

  • What do you expect to see?
  • Who do you expect to meet?
  • Be ready to make notes so when you’re finished you can look back and see what surprised you.
  • Make a list of what you might see?

A Dog, a cat, a red car, a blue door, a letter box, a push chair, a bus ….. Or set yourself challenges like “How Many Different Coloured Cars Did You See?” or “What’s The Highest House Number You Saw?”


This is a simple and entertaining way to help you get to know your neighbourhood. By looking at the people, buildings, animals, plants, trees, cars – and whatever else – that you see, you’ll learn a lot!
