Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

How well do you know Europe?

 

As part of our topic 'Earth as an Island', we are learning about countries of the world. In particular, Year 5 are focussing on Europe, and looking at the countries and their capital cities. We used atlases to search, and had to make sure we were identifying capitals - not just large cities.

 

We created a class list of 43 countries! With some very unusual names like Riga and Rekjavik, Skopje and Sofia.

We tried a couple of quizzes - are you up to the challenge?

We got ALL of these ones right - with a little help from the list we made.

We thought this one was a bit tricker as you need to know the position of the country as well as the names.

We also played a loop game to test our new found knowledge. You could print it out and play it at home if you like!
