We are now on our learning journey focusing on’The Great Fire of London’. This learning journey begins with the children learning about the fire service. The children will experience a visit from the fire service as part of our stunning start. They will also complete ‘fire themed’ art.
During the learning journey children will learn about the history of the fire service, the causes of ‘The Great Fire of London’ and the diaries of Samuel Pepys. As a ‘Marvelous middle’ the children take part in a Perform4schools drama workshop.
The children will focus on the key text ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London.’ They will write stories, non-chronological reports and fire poems. As fantastic finish the children will design and make houses from this era.
Additionally, the main focus in Maths will be numbers 0 to 20. The children will be practicing place value, addition and subtraction. Also, we will look at 2D and 3D shapes.
In Science, the children will continue to look at ‘Everyday materials’. This term we will be investigating properties of materials. We will use the results of our investigations to design an outfit for a firefighter. In PE, the focus will be dance and games. Finally, in phonics we will continue to build our knowledge of phase 3 phonics, alongside learning phase 4 consonant blends.
