For each place visited, see if you can find out where it is - either using a map or atlas, or by zooming in on Google Earth! Think about whether you would like to visit each place.


If you take a bear, please take 3 or 4 photos of them and then send them to the school office email - along with a short description of where the photos are taken and a bit about the location:


Mrs Jillians will then pop them on here for us all to see!
