Year 2 have had fun exploring maps of the UK and finding out about the different countries and their capital cities. They used the directional language of North, East, South and West to state where the countries lie in relation to each other.
The children have also found out about physical and human features and sorted them as a group. They discussed where each of the pictures should so and worked together to complete their posters of different physical and human features.
