This half term our topic will be ‘Fire Fire’. We will be exploring this topic through History, Design technology and art.
In English, we will be reading Vlad and The Great Fire of London. We will be retelling the Great Fire of London Events through the eyes of a rat, focussing on the use of first person, time adverbials and adjectives. We will also be creating and performing our own fire poems.
In Maths, we will be developing our knowledge of subtraction and how to cross 10. We will be learning how to measure mass, capacity and length. We will also be comparing the weight, capacity and length of objects. We will be practising our counting in 2s/5s/10s and working on our place value representation to 100. Please continue to practise your number bonds to 20 at home on a regular basis.
In Science we will be learning about Materials. We will be identifying and naming a variety of every materials. We will be looking at their properties and describing them. We will also be taking part in investigations linked to materials to develop our scientific questioning skills.
In Topic, we will be exploring the history behind this significant event and how London has changed as a result of it. As part of this, we will compare differences between then and now in terms of people’s lives and the area. We will be using artefacts to support this.
