Hello everyone! I hope you are all enjoying our BRITAIN IS GREAT! theme this week. Today you will be learning about the countries that make up Great Britain. Remember to send examples of your work into our class email.
So, here is your home learning for today.
Today you will be learning about Great Britain. We also call our country the United Kingdom (UK), which is slightly different, but we are basically made up of 4 countries and you don’t need to fully understand the difference. Watch these short clips to learn more about this:
Each country in Great Britain has a patron Saint. The Patron Saint of England is St George and we celebrate St Georges day on 23rd April.
Watch this clip to learn of his story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqBn08RywaE
