We will also be visiting the SeaCity museum in Southampton to understand more about the effect it had on our county!
The Adventures of Flat Stanley
This term is a geography based topic. We will be naming and locating the seven continents and five oceans of the world. We will be able to talk about some of the human and physical features of some of the countries within these continents. It will be lovely to hear about all the different places in the UK and the world that the children's friends and relatives live and work. Please look at the topic grid and knowledge organisers to find out more about this topic. Please help your child by reinforcing the vocabulary at home and talking through the key ideas.

In anti-bullying week we have been talking about the right to be safe and what this means in our school. We discussed who we can talk to if we are worried about bullying and how we can help to keep our school a safe and happy place. We read lots of stories about kindness and looking after one another. We also wore odd socks and remembered that IT IS OK TO BE DIFFERENT!
Autumn activity afternoon
We had a wonderful afternoon on Friday 15th October. We had to guess the number of conkers in a jar, guess the fox's name, create natural collages, go on a scavenger hunt and we enjoyed some delicious home-made biscuits! We all had a lovely time and learnt all about Autumn.
