Week 5 - Week beginning 27/04

Geography project!

This week at school, we would have been starting a Geography topic called 'Get me to Glasto'. Glastonbury is a really interesting town in Somerset, England.

For your project, I would like you to research Glastonbury and surrounding areas to find out:

 

1) Where is Somerset/Glastonbury on a map of England?

2) Why do 200,000 people go to Glastonbury every summer?

3) What famous Glastonbury landmark is behind Miss Powell and Miss Saffer? (See picture below)

4) What food is kept in the caves in Cheddar, and why!?

5) Who is the Cheddar man and is he really made out of cheese?
