This week we will be coming to the end of the geography aspect of our topic. (Next half term we will be exploring the history of some of the UK’s most famous landmarks). Have a go at completing your own knowledge organiser on the geography of The United Kingdom to revise what you have learnt. How much of it can you remember? What do you still need to learn? Remember, our brains are like filing cabinets, we need to store the information away, so it is there when we need it!

To end this part of our topic, create a poster to advertise visiting the UK. Why might people want to come here and what could they do when they are here.

Remember to include:

  • rivers
  • mountains
  • coasts
