London’s Burning!

This week we tested the children’s historical knowledge. We were impressed with their recall of key facts. Some of the children could explain what key historical terms meant including chronology and centuries ago. The children have enjoyed becoming the historical figures and retelling the events of The Great Fire of London. Some of the children have been imagining what it would be like to Samuel Pepys. Mrs Mabin’s class even went outside to bury some precious items just like he did in 1666.

In RE we have been continuing to learn about shabbat and we also introduced the Jewish creation story to the children. They have been busy retelling what happened on each of the creation days as part of our Quest activities. 

In Maths, we have been learning to count in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s. Some of the children were set problem solving challenges to apply their knowledge. These are often displayed on our working walls.

Thank you to all of the parents who have brought in cardboard boxes to support our comparative house work in history. Please keep these coming!

If any parents have any resources/games about UK geography they are happy to lend to school, we would be very grateful. They will be used to support our next topic “Bright Lights, Big City.”

Please see the latest homework blog for details on the Spring homework project. There will be three weeks in which to complete the project and they will all be showcased next term.
