Geography Week In Chaffinch

During our geography week we focussed on China. We explored where China was in the world, which 14 countries surround it and whether we would like to live in a megacity. This was followed by looking at the impact of the growing economy, including the positives and negatives of the Three Gorges Dam. We compared life in China for children - most of the class preferred England as children in China's cities tended to go to school at the weekend! We also explored key tourist attractions and the impact of tourism. We also made salt dough dragons. The week finished with a delicious sampling of Chinese food from the local take away!
