Year 5 District 1 Tourist Surveys

At the beginning of March, all Year 5 classes had the opportunity to visit District 1 in order to conduct tourist surveys as part of their IPC topic ‘The Holiday Show’.

  • Year 5 District 1 Tourist Surveys - 5
  • Year 5 District 1 Tourist Surveys - 4
  • Year 5 District 1 Tourist Surveys - 3
  • Year 5 District 1 Tourist Surveys - 2
  • Year 5 District 1 Tourist Surveys - 1

The children created their own questions that they felt were important in understanding what makes people choose certain holidays. The information would also help inform their eventual pretend countries that they will create back in the classroom.

We chose 3 busy locations in the central district: Post Office, Independence Palace and the Vincom Centre. In groups, the children were then encouraged to politely approach members of the public to ask their questions. Despite being a little nervous at first, we were very impressed by the rapid growth in confidence as the 40 minutes or so went by.

The learning task developed numerous skills, including communication and team work. It also had the bonus outcomes of the children being able to practise languages learnt in MFL or their home languages with people from their home countries.

Back in class, the raw data was then turned into bar charts and graphs to reveal patterns and trends that can then be used later! A great experience for the children and a new activity for this IPC topic.
