KS2 Topic Changes in our landscape

KS2 Yr5-Yr6 Geography/History – Changes in our landscapes
Topic day- Methods of farming and changing land use. Q. How has methods of farming and land use changed over time? To gain an understanding of how land use and life has changed over time and recognise key topographical features using and reading OS maps identifying land use symbols and scales as well as locations and distances on all scales of maps, including national and world maps.

This lesson is for upper KS2 and is an ideal lesson for a topic day where pupils would be looking into farming and land use seeing how much has changed over time.
Pupils would use local maps of a county, regional and nationally from a local library - to see how land use has changed over a period of time in the history aspect of this lesson.
With a focus on the different farming ways –studying beef, sheep, dairy, arable, mixed, pastoral and renewable energy using Google Earth as a source of information.
The aim of the geography lesson is for pupils to consider the changes that can happen in an area and about the impact that these changes can have on both the environment and the people who live there.

The curriculum links to Literacy W3 –W4 How farming has changed over time and why Fair trade products are so important, History- Atlantic trade routes /PSHE Fair Trade and Numeracy W5 – Time, distance and speed investigating how far food is exported to.
These can be bought also as a bundle.
I would appreciate any reviews and comments and if improvements can be made.
