Designing a new city

We’ve been learning all about old Baghdad - the capital of the Islamic Empire during the Golden Age of Islam - and have discovered that we can tell quite a lot about a society by looking at how cities are made up. In many historic cities in the U.K. and in old Baghdad, places of worship were right in the centre. Today, we learned how in Milton Keynes, a shopping centre is in the centre - interesting!


We thought about what we’d need in a new city and then started to design our own - taking into account some town planning requirements!
