Investigating the United Kingdom

Toucans have been enjoying looking at atlases and learning how to use them efficiently, by referring to the contents page. They also looked at a globe and discovered we are quite a small country!

They found out the names of the countries using an atlas and were successful in labelling a blank map. Afterwards, the children located the capital cities of each country for an extra challenge. Quite a few children already knew the capital city of England (and the UK) is London. They recognised some London landmarks such as Big Ben, The Houses of Parliament and Buckingham Palace whilst looking at some photos. Great work Toucans!
