Get ready to go back in time to 1666 and explore The Great Fire of London! We will be investigating and enquiring all about The Great Fire of London, which took place in our country's capital city in 1666. A lot has changed over the years and we will compare and contrast the differences. We will look at how technology has changed over time from 1666 to 2018, comparing now and then. We are hoping to go on a trip to the Westlea Fire Station (date to be confirmed at a later date) to teach us the importance of fire safety and how we work together as a community to prevent and put out fires. In English we will develop our writing skills by writing recounts of our trip to the fire station. Similar to Samuel Pepys, we will also write our very own diary entries. In Maths we will develop our addition and subtraction skills with one and two-digit numbers through problem solving and reasoning. We will also investigate the value of coins through role play and look at the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Importantly, we will explore Internet safety in computing and we will be creating our own E-Safety posters.
We look forward to an exciting term that will take us back to a previous time. Please can you ensure that all items- including: water bottles, snack pots, jumpers, daps, etc. are labeled.
Thank you for your continued support. Please see us in the mornings if you have any questions or concerns.
