We’ve had a busy week continuing our learning about the Great Fire of London.
We have learnt about fire safety and the Stop Drop Roll technique. We also talked about 999 and how to make an emergency call.
Today, a town crier came in to our classroom, shouting about a fire and ringing a bell! We wrote our own messages on scrolls and then practised shouting them outside.
We have continued to learn how to play London's Burning on xylophones and Chime Bars. We have also started making Tudor houses which is lots of fun.
London Topic Day
Today we have learnt about London. We started off by finding out where London is and how we could get there. Then we looked at famous landmarks using Google Earth, webcams and pictures. We enjoyed a quiz to see how many we could name. After lunchtime, we prepared an afternoon tea. We made cucumber sandwiches, fruit kebabs and decorated iced biscuits. We also made bunting. At the end of the day, we went on a boat trip down the River Thames. We had our tickets checked and some of us took on the role of Captain. During our trip, we ate our afternoon tea and learnt some more about famous landmarks from our brilliant tour guide Mrs Doolan.
