Autumn 2- Bright Lights, Big City

Hop on board a big, red bus and head for England’s capital.

Yes, that’s right, we’re on our way to London! This half term, we’ll take tea with the Queen and visit Buckingham Palace online. Using maps and research, we’ll locate Buckingham Palace, understand compass directions, plan routes around London and learn about the countries of the United Kingdom. Our research will take us back in time to the Great Fire of London and to famous London landmarks, as well as giving us an understanding of what it’s like to live in a big city. We’ll host afternoon tea, read stories and poetry about London and make models of London landmarks. At the end of our project, we’ll share our skills and knowledge about London with younger children in the school. Our class will tell well-known stories about London, share traditional British songs and nursery rhymes.
