Our topic this term is “Why is Britain Great?” To begin our topic we recapped some of the year 1 learning we had already been taught last year. The children had remembered lots of key facts about our town, country, continents and seas. We then discussed and shared post cards of some of the places we had visited during the summer holidays and located these places on a map of the UK. We even found some time to share lots of delicious rock!!!
The following lessons have involved us using atlases and the iPads to locate the countries of the UK (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales) as we as locating some of the counties in England. We looked further into South Yorkshire and some of the fun things we can do in our very own county.
