Geography – To design a campsite


Use the following websites to research campsites.


Consider what you would want on your campsite. What are the most important facilities a campsite needs? Eg. Toilets, showers, electricity points, a shop etc.


Where would you like your campsite to be? Consider the physical features of the surrounding area. Eg. Near a lake, on a cycle path, at the foot of hills, near a beach.


Choose one of the following activities to complete and bring it into school when we are back:


  • Draw a map of your campsite. Use the Ordanance Survey map symbols to label your map clearly. Make sure the human and physical features are clear on your map. Remember a map is drawn as if we are in the sky, looking down at the land.



  • Design a poster to advertise your campsite. The poster should include information about the facilities on your site and the nearby attractions. You should aim to persuade people to visit your site. Here is an example:



  • Create a TV or radio advert for your campsite. The advert should include information about the facilities on your site and the nearby attractions. You should aim to persuade people to visit your site. You could use the following planning grid to gather some ideas:



You can complete these tasks on paper or on a tablet or computer. Tag us on Twitter with your completed work @KensingPrimary .

I have noticed as I have been walking my dog around the streets near my house that lots of people have been putting rainbows up in their windows. They are there to spread joy and happiness during these tough times. We thought it would be nice if you could also design some rainbows to put in your windows to brighten someone else's day.
