Today I would like you to think about where in the World you would most like to live. Write a letter to someone at home explaining why you think the family should move to a different country. Try to include persuasive language (eg I strongly believe) and as many powerful arguments as you can think of (eg The weather in Sunlandia is so much more pleasant than in England).
Good luck - please let me know if you decide to emigrate!
This week you have created your own imaginary country and even designed its flag.
Today, I ould like you to draw a map of your country.
Think carefully about its shape.
Does it have coastline?
Does it border other countries?
Where are the rivers, mountains, lakes etc.? What are they all called?
Where are the towns and cities? What are they called?
Remember to include a key to go with your map, especially if you make up your own map symbols.
