    Here is an outline of the learning that will be taking place over the next half term:

    Learning Experience – Literacy and History

    The children will become historians and learn all about the Great Fire of London. They will write their own newspaper reports about the event as well as diary entries from that time in history, based on the diary of Samuel Pepys. This learning experience will also be a celebration of the fire service we have today. We will thank our local fire brigade by making them hampers with our own freshly baked bread buns (which were being baked just before the Great Fire started).

    Science: Learning about the properties of different materials through testing.

    Spanish: Colours and Numbers.

    RE: Symbols, Leaders and Teachers.

    Design and Technology: Cookery

    PE: Tag Rugby

    Tawny: Monday, Little: Tuesday, Snowy: Wednesday
