How can I win merits and get to the top of the leaderboard?


You get 1 merit for sending work to

If there’s loads of work on one email, you might get 2 merits if you’re lucky!


You get 1 merit for any comment. Scroll down and type me a message!

One last thing… a word search! See if you can find words about the United Kingdom below. Go onto google maps and search for the cities of Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast. Where are they? Why are they important? Tell me in the comments!



  • Saule says:

    Hello Mr. Morgan,
    Edinburg is the capital of Scotland. Edinburgh is Scotland’s compact, hilly capital. The city is important because, it has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials.

    Cardiff the capital and largest city of Wales, is the United Kingdom’s eleventh-largest city. It is Wales’ chief commercial centre, the base for most national cultural institutions and Welsh media, and the seat of the National Assembly for Wales.

    Belfast is Northern Ireland’s capital. It was the birthplace of the RMS Titanic, which famously struck an iceberg and sunk in 1912. This legacy is recalled in the renovated dockyards’ Titanic Quarter, which includes the Titanic Belfast, an aluminium-clad museum reminiscent of a ship’s hull, as well as shipbuilder Harland & Wolff’s Drawing Offices and the Titanic Slipways, which now host open-air concerts.

    • Mr Morgan says:
