Year 5 – Lesson 6 – Databases in real life

Curriculum KS2 Unit Lesson

The final lesson requires learners to use a real-life database to ask questions and find answers in the context of a flight search based on set parameters. They will take on the role of a travel agent and present their findings, showing how they arrived at their chosen options. Presentations may be given between groups of learners, or by each group to the whole class, depending on the time available.
