Year 7, you are now coming towards the end of your settlement unit of work. In the next 2 lessons you will be completing a 'levelled' decision making exercise (DME).
So what is a decision making exercise?
As you may have guessed by the title, it is an exercise where you have to make decisions! In this exercise you will have to decide the best location for building a new housing estate in the village of Woodford Halse.
During the 1st lesson you will look into the location of Woodford Halse and some history behind why the village has grown in the past.
Here are some notes from that 1st lesson.
- Woodford Halse is a small village in the south of England.
- Woodford Halse lies to the east of the A361 main road that links Banbury to Daventry.
- The village is a rural location, surrounded by open fields and farmland.
- The River Cherwell flows through the village.
- Surrounding villages include; Eydon, Hinton, Preston Capes and Byfield
To the south of the village there is evidence of disused railway lines that are now used as footpaths (see photo below)
