This half term we have been learning about the United Kingdom. We had 3 key questions to help guide our learning. These were:


      What physical features will you find in the United Kingdom?



Can you name some landmarks found in the United Kingdom?



Can you name the 4 countries of the United Kingdom and locate them   

 on a map?



 Our key vocabulary for this unit was:





Northern Ireland



capital city


We started with investigating the 4 countries which make up the United Kingdom. We then labelled them on a map and identifed their capital cities too.

We then focussed on a different country every week to find out more about it. We discussed landmarks, physical and human features and other facts linked with the country.
