Lakes and Rivers

As part of our Geography topic this half term, we will be learning all about lakes and rivers, and in particular the Lake district.  We began by looking at a map of the UK, and identified towns and cities that we were familiar with. We talked about the coastlines, and areas of the UK in the north and south of the country.

 

In groups of two, we constructed our own map of the Lake district, using maps and atlases.  We found this very interesting, and noticed lots of other features on the map, as well as lakes, rivers and mountains.

During today's lesson, the children have been creating their own research about the Lake District.  They will be collating this information and producing leaflets and factfiles about what we have learnt.  Using books, maps, information leaflets and ipads, the children have researched places of interest, historical places, churches and villages. They have used their own art skills to draw waterfalls, lakes and roman forts.

This week, we have been talking about the effects that tourism has on the beautiful surroundings in the Lake District.  The children have made their own suggestions as to what they think may cause conflict between tourists and those who live there.  They said that traffic and parking, along with pollution to the small towns and villages must be a huge problem for those who live there.  They recorded their own 'Newsround reports' about this subject, and performed them for one another in class.

 

Next week, we will be completing our topic, by putting together factfiles and leaflets on everything we have learnt this term. 

These are some of our videos based on the effects of tourism in the Lake District.

To complete and finish our topic, we produced tourism leaflets and factfiles about all we had learnt about the Lake District.  We included places of interest and facts about the area.
