Would you rather go to London or Rio de Janeiro? Why?
In the Bright Lights, Big City project, your child will take part in a royal garden party and learn about Queen Elizabeth II. They will learn about the countries that make up the United Kingdom, including their location, capital cities and some of their physical and human features. They will have the opportunity to do map work, using compasses and positional and directional language to plan routes around London. They will research the cause and impact of the Great Fire of London and look at some famous London landmarks. They will learn about other capital cities around the world, including Kuala Lumpur, and compare how they are similar and different to London.
The children will also cover the companion project 'Taxi!' which is a Design & Technology project teaching the children about wheels, axles and chassis and how they work together to make a vehicle move.
