Spring 1 (6th January-15th February)
Our Topic this term is 'the Great Fire of London'. We will be learning about all of sequence of events during the Great fire, why the fire was able to spread so quickly, and what changes came after as a result of the fire. We will make our own Tudor houses to burn in the playground to demonstrate why London's crowded streets meant the fire could spread. In Science we will be thinking about different materials, linking this to our topic to conduct experiments on different materials to test their suitability for different tasks. Please take a look at our curriculum newsletter for more information, and to see the variety of homework tasks children can take part in at home.
