Autumn Term 1 2021 : Bright Lights, Big City

Our Cornerstones project this term is called Bright Lights, Big City.


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. 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.


All of these wonderful learning experiences will help us to answer this projects Big Question: What do you know about the United Kingdom?
