be a geographer: 'land of the free'

Our world is an endlessly fascinating place - still with so much to explore, know and understand.  The role of a geographer is to endeavour to discover more.

This year, we will be aiming to further develop our understanding of the UK's relationship with the rest of the world before comparing and contrasting features more familiar to us with those in other locations which aren't.  A growing list of resources and home learning suggestions will be recorded here, 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.
