Have you seen the Lorax?

We have been reading The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.

How can we look after our planet? What would you do with the last Truffula seed?

The book created lots of discussion about looking after planet Earth. It also had a strong PSHE focus about caring for the environment.

Do we really need a thneed?!

Firefighter Visit!

Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from a real fire fighter!

We had lots of questions to ask him about what he does for his job, and what equipment he uses to help him in his job.

It was interesting to find out how the equipment is different to the ones used in the Great Fire of London.

Take a look at some of the pictures from his talk!

Katie in London!

This week our focused reading has been on ‘Katie in London’. We have really enjoyed this amazing book and we have enjoyed linking it to our current topic of the Great fire of London too with all the famous landmarks!

We also looked at the ‘ng’ phoneme and where to find this blend in a word. Take a look at our interactive lessons from this week.

Showing off our P.E skills!

In P.E this week, we have looked at improving our ball skills. We were throwing and catching the ball and seeing if we could use hand eye co-ordination to help catch the ball.

This increases our motor skills and we have been working on how we cooperate as a team. This improves our sharing and listening skills too!

London in 1666

We have been learning all about what objects and buildings where around at the time of the Great Fire of London. We have looked at how the houses would have been built and how these would have set on fire easily.

Then we talked about what things people would have used to put out the fire, like fire hooks and leather buckets.
