Lent - Bright Lights, Big City

In the Bright Lights, Big City project, Year 1 will take part in a royal garden party and learn about Queen Elizabeth II. We will learn about the countries that make up the United Kingdom, including their location, capital cities and some of their physical and human features. We will be completing map work, using compasses and positional and directional language to plan routes around London. We will research the cause and impact of the Great Fire of London and look at some famous London landmarks. We will learn about other capital cities around the world, including Kuala Lumpur, and compare how they are similar and different to London.
