A Contrasting UK Locality - KS2 - Interpreting a high street survey of Great Missenden

This resource is part of a KS2 Geography unit designed for teaching about a contrasting UK locality. It uses the rural village of Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire as a case study, once home to famous children’s author Roald Dahl.

This lesson is the last in the unit and is ideally done after covering Lesson 5 - Surveying Great Missenden High Street using Google Street View.

Children are first introduced to a map showing a survey of land use in Great Missenden High Street. The presentation also briefly outlines the RICEPOTS system for categorising land use.

The partner activity then challenges children to interpret information from the survey. In an extension - which is differentiated - children can complete a bar graph of land use on Great Missenden High Street.
