Spring 1

 

Our topic this half term is The Great Fire of London.

This half term we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. We have done lots of writing around this topic. We have done some poetry work, writing some great riddles about fire and learnt about Samuel Pepys' diary and had a go at writing our own. We also wrote a report about the fire as well as imagining we were Thomas Farriner and wrote a letter to King Charles, apologising for the fire.

 

During topic lessons we have learnt many different facts about the Great Fire of London, including where and how it started and how fire fighting techniques were very different in 1666. We have also done lots of exciting artwork this half term. We have done made pictures of the fire, using different materials and we had a go at painting boxes to look like Tudor houses.

 

Here are some photos of the work we have done this half term.
