Spring 2- The Great Fire of London

Our next topic will be all about "The Great Fire of London". This topic will have a history focus which will inspire our writing, art and music work. Alongside this topic we will also be learning about "Data and information – Grouping data" in Computing and "Properties of Materials" in science. In phonics we will be moving onto phase 5B and in handwriting we will be recapping Len’s Ladder Letters and Curly Cals Letters.


This is a wonderful topic that excites and inspires the students and we are looking forward to all of the wonderful learning ahead.

During the Great Fire of London

"Where There's Smoke..." is an exciting new programme for key stage one (5 -- 7 year olds) from The Play House that blends participatory drama, storytelling, teacher-in-role and paper play to explore the impact and significance of the Great Fire of London, and to enable children to empathise with the human stories involved in such a disaster.
