We hope that you have had a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas break and are excited for the new term ahead. This term we will be starting with our topic ‘A fright in the Night’ where we will be learning all about different nocturnal animals.
In English we will be exploring character descriptions, using the exciting Mr Gum to help us. We will then be writing non-chronological reports all about nocturnal animals. We will also be using persuasive language to write letters.
After half term, our topic will be ‘The Great Fire of London’ during which we will be learning all about our amazing capital city and how the fire became such an iconic event. We are hoping for some special visitors to join us at the end of this thrilling topic.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to come and see us at the beginning or end of the school day.
Do you have any ideas for this page? If so then please speak to Miss Moules, Miss Harvey, Mrs Hyde and Mrs Bird.
The Great Fire of London Experience
On Friday 9th March we were joined by a very special visitor called Ian, who transported us back to 1666 and the time of the Great Fire of London.
We spent the morning exploring different shops in London and what it might have been like to live in London during this time. We got to try out all sorts of things including weaving, leather works, herb making, bread making, candle dipping and so much more! We also learnt that jobs included collecting the dead and rat catching! We saw how people had to work together to put the fire out by using water from a well.
In the afternoon, we explored the events of the fire, including how it started, what people did during the fire and how London was changed. We investigated London on a map and followed the path of the fire.
Finally, we become archaeologists. In groups, we dug and found different artefacts in order to work out what shop our objects were from. The day was fantastic!
