be a geographer: 'land of the free'

Our world is an endlessly fascinating place; still with so much to discover, know and understand.  This is the role of a geographer.

This year, we will be aiming to further develop our understanding of our (the UK's) relationship to the rest of the world before comparing and contrasting features more familiar to us with those in other locations which aren't.  Here, a growing list of resources and home learning suggestions will be recorded along with examples from our explorations at school.  

As ever, please share any suggestions you might have which may be useful for others and we would love to hear about anything else you have discovered.
