What to do with this activity?

Does your child know that Ireland is an island on the western edge of Europe, and that the continent of Europe is made up of lots of different countries?  

Here's a great online game to help them get to know and practise the names and locations of all the countries of Europe, as well as the capital cities.  Choose a level, easy or hard, that suits your child.

  • Why am I doing this?

    Children gain confidence in speaking through demonstrating their knowledge to others. Chatting and listening to your child will help build their communication skills. Talking about words and their meaning in everyday life will also help build your child’s vocabulary – and your own!

  • How can I do more?

    Funny stories are interesting and a good excuse to get your child talking. At mealtimes, each family member could tell something interesting or something funny that happened during the day. Watching TV together can also provide a good opportunity for chat and to discuss what you are watching. Check if your child understands different things they hear and encourage your child to teach you new words and things they have learnt.
