Tourism means travelling for fun. When people visit a place for fun they are called tourists. Burnham is a place people like to visit so there are often tourists here. Talk to a grownup. Why do people like to come to Burnham? Think about the fun things there are to do, things to see, things to eat! You might have said some of these reasons.
Eating ice cream or fish and chips
Now, think about Burnham in summer and Burnham in winter. When is it most busy? Talk to a grownup. Why do you think that is? What does that mean for the people who work at the places tourists like to visit? How does that affect Burnham?

Look at geography of school and surrounding area. Look at pictures and describe human and physical features. Physical features are parts of the landscape that are natural such as coastlines and woods. Human features are man made and wouldn’t be there unless humans built them. These are things like houses, factories, train stations and roads.
Use the pictures above and if possible, go for a walk with a grownup to see how many different human and physical features you can find in Highbridge and Burnham. If you can’t go out, how many can you think of that you have seen locally. Make a list.
