Each week we will chose a country from a different continent.  Barnaby Bear will help us explore!   If you are learning at home, parents do choose a country you or your family members have connections with or have visited or remember from your own school days, or maybe have just been interested in from your armchair!  If you have brothers or sisters at SJF, it might be fun to choose the same country together!
