Autumn 1 News

Our topic this term is ‘Let it Burn.’ We started off the new school year with burning our houses which we made in the summer holidays. Miss Walsh brought in a fire pit and we really enjoyed watching our houses go up in flames. We then went on to learn about the Great Fire of London and in particular Samuel Pepys. As part of our topic, we enjoyed having a fire safety talk by firefighters. We learnt about how to stay safe in our home and what to do in a fire.

In science, we are looking at animals and their habitats. We loved going to the basins on a habitat search. In class, we have been researching how animals are adapted to their habitats.
