Do we need different shops in Middleton?
This project teaches children to see their environment with 'fresh' eyes and record what they may take for granted. We will visit Middleton shopping centre and record what shops are available on a given map. We will use a key to label the shops noticed. Results will be collated as a tally chart and presented as a graph. Using these results we will be able to try and answer our enquiry question through discussion. Children will then create a poster to promote Middleton shopping centre.

Unit Sequence: Learning Intentions
To introduce the process a geographical enquiry takes - asking questions, collecting information, presenting information, analysing the information and responding to their findings.
The children will go to Middleton's shopping centre. Once there, they will be given a designated area to focus on. They will map the shops they see on to a given map using a key.
Back in school the information will be collated together using a tally chart. This tally chart will then be used to create a graph so results become very visible. This graph will lead to a class discussion, trying to answer our enquiry question.
Through discussion, the children will create posters in groups, promoting Middleton's shopping experience.
