Through the use of story and humour, this unit gives a context for Year 1 children to undertake one of their first geographical enquiries. It will help them to focus on the vocabulary necessary to describe places, make them aware of the key features and some of the processes at work in the local environment, and understand the importance of mapwork skills in recording and visualising the information involved.

Balancing classroom learning and first-hand enquiry, the unit offers a way of looking at a place which gives children a structure and purpose for describing their own local area. There are clear links between this unit and other local area units. However, the use of the seagulls' story also offers links to literacy, science, the environment and citizenship.
