Our topic this autumn: Across the Oceans

The first half term, we will focus much of our learning on the historic voyage of the Mayflower. This is particularly exciting considering our school’s proximity to the Mayflower Steps and the 400 year anniversary. The second half term, will be focused on the voyages of the Vikings. These fierce warriors sailed the oceans before invading and settling on the British Isles.
