The Great Fire Of London

We have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We decided we wanted to recreate the fire. So we learnt about Tudor houses and what they looked like and during design and technology we created our own versions made out of cereal boxes. Then on the 6th December Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue service came to our school and set them on fire! We told the firemen all the facts we had learnt about the fire. The firemen then let us have a look at all the different parts of the fire engine and explained what they did. We then got homework to go and check our smoke alarms at home. 


We are now learning about real life heroes. The children are writing a non-chronological report about them. This week we have had a visitor - Ed the paramedic. He told us all about what paramedics do and showed us some photos. He also brought his uniform in for us to try on! Thank you Ed we really enjoyed it. 


It was RE week the first week of school. During this we did lots of work based on harvest. We particularly looked at the Bishops Harvest Appeal which was based on “Water is Life”. The children watched a video about a girl who had to travel a long way to find water. We had a go at carrying water around the playground. 


So far our maths this term has been all about place value. We are working hard to really understand the value of a number. Have a look at the photos to see what we have been up to.
