Studying distant places through localities allows teachers to take advantage of children's natural interest in people and places. This study of a distant locality is based in Kenya, an economically developing country on the east coast of Africa. It focuses on Kaptalamwa, a village in the Cherangani Hills, close to the Equator and with a population of around 1500. The Kaptalamwa photopack aims to encourage children to develop informed and balanced attitudes towards other people and places, and increases their knowledge and understanding of place through the use of up-to-date, accurate, relevant and interesting material. There is detailed information about the people of Kaptalamwa, their traditions and way of life, the climate and landscape of the area, and some background material about Kenya itself. There are seven activity pages specific to key stage 1 and eleven to key stage 2 which promote the enquiry process, so important in the development of key geographical concepts. These carefully planned and structured activities, written by primary teachers and trialled in primary classrooms, integrate the programmes of study for places, skills and themes. This allows teachers of Key stage 1 and 2 children using Kaptalamwa to address their distance place work with confidence. The 24 A4 full colour photographs accompanying the book complete this useful study pack.
