Autumn Term 2021 Learning

This term we have been learning all about The Great Fire of London. In geography, we have been learning about the four countries of the United Kingdom and their capital cities. We have been using atlases and globes to find the countries and mark them on maps. We have used our map knowledge to look at London and investigate how far The Great Fire spread. We were interested to find out about the buildings in London in 1666, the firefighting equipment, the dry summer and strong winds which all contributed to fire burning for so long. We were all especially enthusiastic about creating a whole class timeline to show the most important events within The Great Fire.

In English, we really enjoyed writing our own firework poems. Our poems were inspired by Crackle! Spit! By Marie Thom and November Night Countdown by Moira Andrew. We used lots of descriptive expanded noun phrases to make sure our readers had a clear picture of each firework in their heads.  We enjoyed rehearsing the poems and then performing them in front of our classes. We also really enjoyed making our shortbread recipes in the style of Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street. We thought very carefully about which bossy verbs would be best for each part of the process and even tried to use some adverbs ending in ly to describe how to complete each of the actions. 

Our science and DT learning this term have both been part of an exciting project. We explored different types of materials and looked at their properties. We then tested the materials to evaluate their suitability for Christmas stocking making and couldn’t wait to use what we had learnt to design our own Christmas stocking. We have all been very resilient when cutting and sewing the felt for our stocking, it was a very tricky process!
