Geography in Year 1


Throughout Autumn 1, the children in Year 1 focused on their homes and local area through our topic 'Home is where the Heart is'.  We began by looking at the seven continents that make up our world, locating these on a map of the world, and to help us with this, we learnt The Seven Continents Song.  We then looked at our country, the United Kingdom, locating this on a world map, and then identified the four countries that make up the UK and their capital cities.  We thought about the features and the characteristics of the countries within the UK, including their flags, national flowers and their national Saint.  Following this, we explored our local area and described the place we call home.
