We discussed at the signs of Autumn we already know. We then watched a BBC Bitesize video that shows the changes that happen in nature in preparation for Winter. We learnt that leaves start to change colour, animals like hedgehogs and dormice start to hibernate and animals like squirrels start collecting nuts and seeds as food to store during the colder months. We then went outside and completed an “Autumn Treasure Hunt”.
We learnt about the 4 main compass points - north, east, south and west. To help us to remember the correct order, we sang a song and created some rhymes.

We then went outside to play a game to find the compass points. When a compass point was shouted out, we had to run to the correct point.
We talked about how Earth is a sphere and has a northern and southern hemisphere. We live in the northern hemisphere in Chorley, England.
We located the North and South poles and discussed the climate in these areas. It is very cold. We also located the Equator which can be found around the centre of our world. It is an imaginary line and the climate there is very hot.
Different types of animals live on the Equator compared to the poles. We sorted these on our map.
