Autumn 2 News

This term we continued with the topic ‘Let it burn’ and started with a visit to Wellington Fire Station. Whilst here, we found out about their job as a fire firefighter and the equipment they use today. We then compared this with what we already know of fire fighters in 1666. We asked lots of questions and the fire fighters were impressed with our knowledge about The Great Fire of London. 

On 11th November we learnt about Remembrance Day, we watched videos, heard stories and found out about the importance of this historical day. To remember those, we made and decorated a poppy.  Alongside the rest of KS1 we walked over to the park to lay our poppies and held a two minute silence.

In RE we learnt about the significance of Jesus in the ‘The Christmas Story’. This fitted in well with our nativity performances as the lead up to the Christmas holidays began.



Autumn 1 News

Our topic is let it burn.  At the beginning of term the children built houses out of cardboard for homework, which we then burnt in a fire pit in the playground. The children thoroughly enjoyed watching their houses burst into flames! This led onto our learning about the great fire of London and why the fire spread so quickly. We have learnt the significant dates and names and are able to order the events that happened.

Then, on Bonfire night we created firework paintings and began to find out about this historical event. We are going to continue our let it burn topic by learning about Guy Fawkes and Lord Monteagle.

In Science, we have been learning about animals including humans. We have discovered different types of animals and found out about what they like to eat. We are beginning to look at different habitats.
