Marvellous Megacities?

Date: 12th Jan 2023 @ 2:52pm

In Year 3, we have been exploring different kinds of settlements. In our English work, we have been looking at a Stone Age camp in 'Stone Age Boy' and are writing a description from the boy's perspective. In Geography, we have been looking at modern settlements, from tiny hamlets to cities and then megacities. The children used maps to find which countries some of the world's megacities are located in. They noticed that they used the map of Asia more often, so realised that's where many megacities are. They learnt about density and how it affects people's lives. Using the collaborative Blind Consensus strategy, they sorted ideas individually and placed them face down. They then discussed them as a team, to reach a consensus.
