Autumn 2 News

This half term, we carried on our topic ‘Let it Burn’. We learnt all about Guy Fawkes and how he started the Gunpowder Plot to blow up parliament. We now know all about Bonfire night and why we celebrate on this day.

In November we made poppies and took them over to Wellington Park to put around the memorial. We held a two minutes silence to remember the people who died in the wars to help save our country. Mrs Keeling made a purple poppy and told us that it was for the animals that died.

We took part in a ‘Vocabulary Day’ where we could dress up as any word, other than a noun. We had great fun learning new words and understanding the definition of these.

We worked very hard to put on a KS1 Christmas production called ‘Bethlehem’s Buzzing’. We loved performing to the school and our parents. 


Autumn 1 News

Our topic this term has been ‘Let it burn’. Over the summer holidays we made houses out of cardboard and when we started back in our new class we set them alight in a fire pit on the playground. We really enjoyed it, and when a fireman came in to speak to us about fire safety he was so impressed with our knowledge on being safe around fire. We have learnt a lot about The Great Fire of London and how it started. Did you know it spread so fast because the houses were made of wood and were so close together? We are looking forward to understanding more about Guy Fawkes next half term!

In Science, we have been learning all about animals. We have learnt about the different types of animals and know that Carnivores eat meat, Herbivores eat plants and vegetables and Omnivores eat both! We are now looking at different Habitats.

As a class we have really enjoyed creating a love for reading environment in the classroom. We have also been working hard to do this at home, the more times we read the higher up the class reading beanstalk we can climb! We love reading independently, with friends and listening to stories!
