Welcome to Year Five.

This term we will be learning all about the United States of America.

There are lots of areas that you can research and explore.

  • Why is America split into 50 smaller states?
  • What is the US constitution?
  • What is the highest mountain in the USA? What is the longest river in USA?
  • Why is the USA such a powerful country?
  • What do you know about the President of the United States? How is his role different to a UK Prime Minister?
