People and communities 


Ask your grown up, have you been on a bus?

Where is the furthest place you have traveled to on a bus?



The world


There are many type of buses in the world.. 

They have things that are the same such as they all help people travel but they are also different, maybe the colour or height. Have a look at the different types of buses. Can you look for similarities and differences?










Can you use your tablet or a mobile phone to make a photo story with a toy bus or car like the Naughty Bus story. 


Exploring media and materials


Make a bus picture: Draw pictures of your friends to go in the windows of the bus.



You could paint a bus... 


You could make a bus out of old materials...


Or you could make a bus out of large boxes....


Which one would you like to build?
