Spring Term - 2021

 

The Great Fire of London

Our topic for the first half of this term is 'The Great Fire of London'. We will be learning about some of the key important people in the fire (like Samuel Peypes, Christopher Wren and Charles II), how the fire spread around the city, the long term impact of the fire and how the fire led to the creation of a national fire brigade. Lots of our History, English, Art, DT and reading learning will be based around this topic. In Science, we will be exploring everyday materials and conducting some experiments to explore their properties. In maths we will be looking at multiplication and division (2, 5, 10 and 3x tables) and statistics (tally charts, block and bar charts). 

For more information, please read the Newsletter below. This will also be sent home with your child on the first day of term. 

Important information: 

-PE days: Thursday and Friday. Children should come dressed in their PE kits on these days.
