YEAR 5 HOMEWORK 

 Geography

To celebrate the FIFA World Cup, each of you has been given a team in our Year 5 sweepstake, and whether you are cheering with delight at pulling Brazil or crossing your fingers for England or even hoping for an upset from Senegal, we would like you to use this to inspire some learning!

We would like you to produce a factfile on your country. You may include:

- a map showing its location

- landmarks

- food

- culture

- language

- climate

- native wildlife

- and even a little about their football team if you wish

These can be presented in your learning logs or on paper for display.
