Class 1's topic this term is Fire. The children will be learning about the Great Fire of London and how it affected the city, including burning down a row of Tudor houses and observing the effects of fire. They will be making 3d models of houses and exploring the materials Tudor houses were made from.
Children will read and write diary entries - looking at Samuel Pepys. and will write a newspaper article about the Great Fire of London.
We are hoping to have a visit from the local fire brigade and are planning to investigate the properties of different materials. Children will be looking at Dragon myths and stories and exploring the story of George and the Dragon. In P4C they will be asking and answering questions relating to whether stories are true, talking about eggs and also characters in fairy tales. In RE we will be looking at Creation Stories and linking this with fire and festivals.
