Describe how the people working in local services use technologies to provide what we need e.g. water, waste disposal, emergency help or support.

Give examples of how a broader range of local shops & businesses provide us with the things we want & need e.g. How does a local business make its products? What technology is part of a trip to the cinema or having a meal out?

Explore an expanding range of ways in which our wants & needs are met by technologies e.g. how & where does our food come from, how does it get to our shops/homes; how does where we go on holiday affect the environment? Say which technologies are used by organisations & businesses in my local area & comment on how these affect our environment.
