Week beginning 6-2-23. This week we are learning about which country we live in and what countries make up the United Kingdom. Each country in the UK has its own flag and capital city. Did you know they also have their own national flower and emblem? For example, the national flower of England is the rose and the lion is our national emblem. These can often be seen on the different sports kits for each country they represent. With this in mind, could you name the national flowers and emblems for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland?
Week beginning 20-9-22. This week in Geography we are learning about where we live. What did we live near? Can we read a map? We have had great fun this week learning about directions. Mrs Brabbin pretended to be a robot and she only knew the commands left, right, forward, backward and stop. The children were given a map of the school and had to direct the robot to each point on the map. However, some of the children quickly discovered that if they gave the wrong instructions, the "robot" would walk into a wall - much to their delight but rather unfortunate for Mrs Brabbin's nose!
We are also learning about buildings. What is the difference between a bungalow, house or flat? Who might live in a castle or palace? What might you find in a library? Perhaps when you go for a walk you could point some of these things out to your child and have a chat about them.
