Europe is an important physical and human backdrop to life in Britain today. We go on holiday there; friends and family live there; some of us work there. We are citizens of the European Union - a major political group - and children need to recognise their obligations as young European citizens.

A wide range of resources - TV, video, books, the internet, as well as personal experience - are available to support the study of Europe, and offer children opportunities to explore similarity and difference, continuity and change and spatial awareness in a broader international setting. This unit, for Years 4 to 6, encourages children to develop their knowledge and understanding of the variety of places, environments and cultures which make up the place called Europe, to value this rich diversity and to develop a more global personal perspective as citizens of the European Union.
