Year 5 Trip to Shanghai Urban Museum

20 October 2016

Year 5 had an exciting day out at the Shanghai Urban Planning Museum. In class we have been learning about settlements, cities and villages. We made lots of links to our classroom learning whilst on the trip.

We applied our knowledge of maps and looked at old Shanghai street maps from the 1900's. We also compared old archive photographs of Shanghai to modern ones and discussed the differences in land use and transportation over time. We saw how the residential areas of Shanghai have changed significantly over the last 100 years.

We also learned about the geology of Shanghai. We discovered that 1.3 billion years ago, Shanghai used to be covered by a vast sea. We also found out that the land around Shanghai is constantly expanding at a very slow rate.

The giant map of Shanghai was very impressive and encouraged us to think about the layout of our own village models that we are creating in school. We are looking forward to using what we have learned in class to help us plan and complete our model villages.

Many thanks to our parent helpers and the Year 5 teachers for making the trip a huge success.

Dean Clayden, Year 5 Leader
