Town Planner Visit to Class 6

presenting our ideas

On Wednesday 31st January 2018, Mrs Phillips (a parent at the school) visited class 6 to talk about town planning as part of our ‘Buildings’ topic. We started by discussing all the different people who help to design a new
town and what we need to use from the land around it. We thought about the different types of buildings that are needed and where they need to be placed within the town.

The children were then divided into groups and they planned their own towns. We had some great ideas, such as making sure that there were enough houses, how many football stadiums to have and where would the roundabouts should go! Mrs
Phillips helped the children with their decisions.

Finally, we presented the towns we had designed to the other groups.

We would like to thank Mrs Phillips for giving up her time to visit class 6.
