A Land of Opportunity?

In preparation for Year 6’s summer topic all about the USA, on Friday 23rd March the children were challenged to the Ultimate USA quiz! Rounds included questions spanning topics from ‘Songs with America in the title’ to ‘Famous landmarks and their states’. The purpose of the quiz was to find out what the children already knew about the USA and to spark enquiry related to what they would like to find out more about. The children were amazed by the size of the USA and were quickly engaged by the range of topics discussed.

We found that most people wanted to know more about the tourist attractions and famous landmarks around the country and how the landscape and natural resources of the country vary from state to state.

We’re now ready and excited for our new topic to start in the Summer term!
