Term 5
Brilliant Britain!
This term, our focus turns to Great Britain and the countries within it. Building on our knowledge of London from last two terms, we will learn about the countries within the United Kingdom of Great Britain, their capital cities and the surrounding seas. 
We will explore how to use maps to identify locations, describe similarities and differences between towns and cities, examine sources and maps from a birds eye view and also compare our country with a contrasting location. 
Please see the knowledge organiser below for more information on what your child will learn.
