On Monday 19th October we recreated 'The Great Fire of London'. We placed the houses in the playground to look like Pudding Lane. The children were amazed and enjoyed watching the fire.
They then made a long line to the 'River Thames' (a bucket at the other end of the playground!) and passed along cups to help put the fire out.
This term we have been learning all about The Great Fire of London.
In English, the children have enjoyed exploring different types of poems to help them plan and write their own acrostic poems. We used our senses to help us imagine and describe what the Great Fire of London would have been like. The children used lots of adjectives! We have also been exploring the fictional book 'Toby and the Great Fire of London'. We used a story map to help us retell this through role play and then continued to write the whole story using the story map as a guide. The children used their previous knowledge of adjectives, verbs and adverbs to edit and improve their work.
In Maths this term we have explored place value, addition and subtraction. The children have explored these concepts using various resources and manipulatives to help secure their understanding.
Below are some of the lovely pieces of work that have been put up on display! Acrostic poems and some work we completed in history where we had to order the events from the Great Fire of London.
