The Union Flag, commonly known as the Union Jack, is the flag of the United Kingdom.

Since the 18th century, England has been one part of a wider political entity covering all or part of the British Isles, which today is called the United Kingdom. Wales was annexed by England by the Laws in Wales Acts 1535–1542, which incorporated Wales into the English state.[54] A new British identity was subsequently developed when James VI of Scotland became James I of England as well, and expressed the desire to be known as the monarch of Britain.[55]
In 1707, England formed a union with Scotland by passing an Act of Union in March 1707 that ratified the Treaty of Union. The Parliament of Scotland had previously passed its own Act of Union, so the Kingdom of Great Britain was born on 1 May 1707. In 1801, another Act of Union formed a union between the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Kingdom of Ireland, creating the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. In 1922, about two thirds of the Irish population (those who lived in twenty-six of the thirty-two counties of Ireland), left the United Kingdom to form the Irish Free State. The remainder became the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, although this name was not introduced until 1927, after some years in which the term "United Kingdom" had been little used.
Throughout the history of the UK, the English have been dominant in population and in political weight. As a consequence, notions of 'Englishness' and 'Britishness' are often very similar. At the same time, after the Union of 1707, the English, along with the other peoples of the British Isles, have been encouraged to think of themselves as British rather than to identify themselves with the constituent nations.

List of Moral Values for Lesson Planning


List of Moral Values for Lesson Planning

   These few days have been a blur... because things are happening so fast!

   I have lots to blog about, but because I'm short of time, I'll just post this list of moral values. It's useful for teachers and trainees alike in planning lessons as in every lesson plan, you must always include at least one moral value to accompany your lesson content! This is from the ministry, there's a short introduction to it, but I don't have it now- will post when I find it!

   Please understand that I am not plagiarising or anything! Hehe. Nor am I posting this just for the mere sake of posting. I just think this would be good for future teachers to know.

MORAL VALUES IN THE ISSC
