Supporting the junior children in recent events

Understandably, many of the children are asking questions or sharing concerns about the recent attack in Manchester. We are using the following BBC newsround clip to support class discussion, focussing on the scarcity of such attacks and reminding children that the majority of people are ‘good’ and also that they manage risks all of the time, for example: crossing roads and not talking to strangers.

A busy day in London

So. We have……crossed Tower Bridge, taken a boat trip, been on the Eye, visited Horseguard’s Parade, met the lions in Trafalgar Square, popped to Downing Street and selfied on The Mall. We think we’ve earned our tea at Planet Hollywood!


So far, so good. We’ve had a stroll in the sunshine, played ‘spot the Ferrari’ and are now tucking into our tea in Pizza Express.
