Land Use - Somewhere to Settle.

In this unit, you will head back in time to find out how the towns and cities of the UK first developed. You will learn about the needs and requirements early settlers had when choosing a place to build a home. You will look at place names around the UK to see how the Anglo-Saxons, Romans and Vikings all left their mark. Through use of digital and paper maps, if you have them, you will investigate land use in different sized settlements and the ways in which settlements are linked together.


I will post a lesson a week for you to have a go at. Have fun!
