Learning about the Union flag

We have been learning about the Union flag this afternoon. We learnt how the flag was created and which countries’ flags were combined to make the flag that we know today. The children were invited to choose one of three challenges: decorate a flag; complete a partially drawn flag or accurately draw the flag from scratch and decorate it. We were very impressed with the results and will be creating bunting to decorate the classroom. Please feel free to pop in and see it.
