Today Year 5 were looking at the similarities and differences between Norway and Wales. They have been looking at the two places in depth and today it was the economy.
They began by highlighting the similarities and differences in pairs and then joined other pairs doing the same area to compare their findings before writing a paragraph on what they had found.
There were some interesting facts to be learnt. The economy of each place is very dependent on the terrain (the way the land is- it can be flat or hilly, mountainous or barren). Also, as we have seen, both Norway and Wales are very picturesque (beautiful) and so they both have a lot of tourism (people having holidays and visiting there). Tourism creates jobs and brings the country money. That is part of their service industry. They also looked and farming and agriculture, forestry, sports and recreation as well as transport and manufacturing.
Have a look at them hard at work.
