We looked at Google Earth to find the location of France. We discussed it's size and climate with reference to the U.K. We discussed the possible ways to travel to France including via the channel tunnel and by Ferry. We looked at images from around the country including Eurodisney, the Alps, the French Riviera, the vinyards, the German influenced houses in Alsace and the capital city Paris.
We then went out to do some Crossfit exercises on the KS1 school field
