Encourage children to explore some of London’s most famous buildings and landmarks.

Meet the landmarks

London landmarks

Show pupils the selection of images of London landmarks on the Slideshow , ‘London landmarks’. Have any of the pupils visited one of them?

Talk about the different purposes that buildings have (for example, as places to live, work, be entertained, receive medical treatment, govern, commemorate or worship). Discuss what makes a structure or place a tourist attraction (for example, beauty or historical significance).

Talk about the different materials that have been used to make each landmark (for example, stone, wood, glass, metal). Why have these been chosen? KS2 pupils could complete Activity sheet , ‘London landmarks quiz’. Help KS1 pupils build up a vocabulary of words used to describe the landmarks (tall, shiny, historical, beautiful, interesting) and write these on the board. Ask them to write sentences including one or two of these words.
