My Place

When exploring this topic of children and their place, no place is more important to each individual than their own home, their own room, their backyard or their neighbourhood. Here are some of the maps, photos and drawings that represent "My Place" to Kerry Street kids.

Angel, Jade and Melody have a farm in Narrogin and when they come to school they stay in a friend's huge machinery shed and sleep in the truck!

"My favourite place at home is the chook run and the playground. I like to bounce on my trampoline and make potions. In the chook run I like to sit and hold the chicons." ~Jade 8 yrs

"My favourite place at home is my bedroom and the backyard. I like to read, dress up, listen to music and other fun things. I also love to make cubbies, play in the teepee and eat mulberries." ~Aquilla 8 yrs

"There's a park around the corner from my house. I like going there and playing on the seesaw with my friends. There is also swings, a slide, a tyre swing and a lake with ducks in it."

The older students surveyed everyone at school and produced these pie graphs that give us information about how far we live from school and how we get there.
