We listened to some bonfire music and pretended to be fireworks, moving around in different ways to help us create our Bonfire poems.

In History, we will be learning about the Great Fire of London and looking at life from the past. We will learn about how this significant event has changed fire safety equipment. We will have a special visitor who will talk to us about their life as a child and we will learn about the types of toys they played with and how they celebrated Christmas. We will also be making some of our own ‘toys from the past.’

In Art, we will be studying paintings from the Great Fire of London and using these to create our own giant collage of London. We will use different techniques to create our collage such as chalk drawings and charcoal.   

We will be looking carefully at fire fighting equipment and we will learn about wheels and axles in order to design and build our own fire engines. We will also be making our own Victorian style Christmas cards.   

In Science, we will be learning about how animals grow and change. We will look at the life cycle of different animals and find out about their basic needs and how they survive.   

We will also be preparing for our Christmas show and look forward to seeing you all there!!
