Exciting Four Nations

We have had lots of fun this half term, learning about a different country in the United Kingdom each week.

Our Monday mornings have been filled with exciting activites for each country. All of our writing has also linked to a different country each week.

We started with England where we enjoyed a traditional cream tea, made crowns, coloured in flags and learnt about London landmarks. We read the book 'Paddington visits London' and learnt about proper nouns.

Then we moved onto Northern Ireland. We enjoyed making finger puppets for the folktale of 'Finn MacCool and the Giant's Causeway' and had a go at Irish dancing. We also read the book 'Finn MacCool and the Giant's Causeway' as a whole class, the teachers were really impressed!

After that, we looked at Wales. During our Wales hook morning we looked at the different castles in Wales and had a go at sketching, colouring, drawing and making our own castles. We also made sheilds to help protect our castles from dragons! We read the book 'Alfie and the Dragon', thinking about adjectives ending in the 'est' suffix to describe our very own dragons.

Finally, we learnt about Scotland. We made our own shortbread, it was very yummy! We also designed our own tartan, tried Scottish dancing and made Loch Ness monsters. We read the book 'There once was a wee Lassie' and innovated the story to include our own ideas. We had lots of fun doing this!
