We have been working really hard this week to build our very own Pudding Lane. First, we designed and built our own house models. Then, we took our houses to Base Camp to construct a street. Miss Taylor helped us to start a fire in the ‘bakery’ and we watched as the fire spread along the whole street.
We have had a wonderful morning launching our new topic; ‘The Great Fire of London’. We learned about the event and acted it out in small groups. We have started some fire artwork… take a look at our painting so far. We will show you our masterpieces next week!
Can you remember why the fire spread so quickly?
We hope that you all had a lovely, restful Christmas break. We have had such a lovely start to the Spring term today! The children settled really well back into school life and it was wonderful to see them so eager to begin learning again.
Important Days for the Spring Term:
Tuesday – Forest School
Wednesday and Friday – PE (however, if possible, PE kits should be in school all week in case of timetable changes).
Year 1 team :)
We absolutely loved our visit to the Severn Valley Railway yesterday. After learning about steam trains, it was a real treat to be able to experience one in real life. Our visit to the Severn Valley Railway really engaged the children in our History topic and they thoroughly enjoyed sharing the facts that they learned when we returned to school. We were extremely lucky to have a very special visitor on our train… there’s certainly some surprised faces in our photos!
