Burravoe Primary School

The Walk to See Houses and Homes


On Wednesday the 20/05/15 we went for a walk around Burravoe and spoke about the homes belonging to people.We spoke about what they are made of and are they detached,Semi-detached,Terraced,Bungalow,Flats,Caravans or other.Other are like the Old Haa or a shop. We all had clipboards so we wrote down or ticked the box which said the right kind of house. A detached house is when its stands all alone by itself. A semi-detached house is when they are two houses joined up. A  terraced house is when there are lots of houses joined up. A bungalow is one house with no stairs and flats are houses one on top of each other.

We saw 5 detached houses, 16 semi-detached houses, 1 row of terraced houses,2 bungalows,0 flats, 1 caravan,1 other which was the Old Haa. Kerrys house was a church and now she lives in it.
On the walk we saw sheep, cars, fields, people, flowers, boats, clouds.

I enjoyed the walk because I liked seeing the houses.

The first photo is a house but it used to be a church. The second photo is a detached house. The third photo is houses joined up together which is called terraced houses.



  1. Interesting study of your community. We learn about our communities early in our school year. Most of our students live in homes that are called ranches, 2 stories and some live in apartments where there are many homes attached together.
    Our school location does not allow us to walk anywhere other than the playground/bus lot. As we ride buses or cars to school we might also cows, horses, goats, chickens on small farms or even in backyards. There are some larger farms with hay growing in the fields. We have a small regional airport nearby and many businesses.

  2. Loved reading about your geographical survey. Sounds a great way to learn about your area! What the next step in your learning?
