Quick recap:

  • Where is the story of 'Katie in London' set?
  • London is the capital city of which country?
  • If you visit London, what can you see? Can you name 5 places of interest / landmarks?


We want people to visit our capital city London because there are so many amazing things to see!

If you could visit London, what would you like to see?


I'd like you to create a poster. A poster is a mix of writing and pictures / photos / drawings that is displayed as a notice, advertisement or for decoration. Have you seen any posters recently?


On your poster, you need to include:

  • Visit London!
  • The places you want people to visit - for example, Big Ben, Tower of London, London Eye. 
  • A drawing of the place
  • A reason why people should visit - for example, "You can see the Crown Jewels".
