Fire, Fire! 

 

Our topic for this first half term is Fire, Fire! 

Throughout this half term, the children will be taking on the role of 'Museum Workers'. They will be investigating into the Great Fire of London. Their tasks will include: looking at artefacts and designing questions we might want to find out about, sequencing the great fire of London events, using evidence, eye witness accounts and photographs to prove or disprove statements about the event and comparing London in 1666 and now. Their learning will be supported with a trip to 'Staircase House' where they will continue to learn more information about the 'Great Fire of London'.

In Art, the children will be learning about the artist Paul Klee and specifically re-creating his painting of a 'Castle and the Sun'. They will do so by using maths shapes to build a small replica and will then using the skill 'tinting' to create many shades of one colour.

In Literacy, the children will be re-telling the story of Cinderella in the first part of the half term. The second part of the half term will see the children write their own diary in the style of Samuel Pepys using all of the information they have found out about in History. 

In Music, the children will be learning the song 'London's Burning' first by singing it as a whole class and then by learning it 'in the round'. Once achieved, the children will be taught the song on a xylophone and all children will have the opportunity to play the accompaniment whilst singing along too. 

To summarise all of their amazing learning, the childrne will hold a museum opening at the end of the half term!

 

P.E. is on Thursdays - please ensure the children have their kit on these days. 

Number Bonds are sent home on a Monday and are quizzed the following Monday.
