This half term we are going to be learning more about the United Kingdom, but to start we would like to find out more about the places you have visited. You may have travelled abroad to different countries, to places in the United Kingdom or to places near to where you live.

Our school is in Brandesburton, which is in the country England. Using the maps below talk with a family member about the location of Brandesburton and the places you have visited. Think about:

  • how you got there
  • how far away it is
  • what places are nearby
  • what country it is in
  • what landmarks you saw
  • what activities you did

After you have explored the maps we would like you to write and draw about one or more of the places you have visited.

It would be fantastic if you could send in any photographs of places you have visited within the United Kingdom or share any postcards/leaflets to support our classroom displays and future lessons.
