What are we learning this half term?

Spring Term 1 - The Great Fire of London


This term, we are learning all about the Great Fire of London in History. We will be learning many key facts about when the fire happened, how it started, what helped it to spread and what the effects were after the fire had finally been put out. 


Please talk to your children and ask them about The Great Fire of London - they have many amazing facts to share with you! 


Linked with our Great Fire of London topic, we are building structures in Design and Technology. These structures are the buildings and houses like those on Pudding Lane in London, 1666. The children have started the design and building process and will be continuing this over the coming weeks. They will also be adding designs to the outside of the buildings that replicate the Tudor housing like in 1666. 


In Music we are singing songs that link with The Great Fire of London, including: London's Burning, Here in Pudding Lane and London Town has Fallen Down. We will be learning many different skills that are needed to sing for example, the importance of posture and listening to the rhythm. 



Science - Animals including Humans


In Science this half term, we are learning about the lifecycles of humans and  other animals. We will be able to explain how different animal groups have different stages of life and that each stage can see them change in their looks and abilities. 

We will also take time to learn more about being healthy through regular exercise and healthy eating.
