Autumn Term 2020

 

The topic this term is ‘Fire! Fire! Fire!’. We will look at the events that surrounded the fire in London and  will use a variety of resources (diary extracts, pictures, computer images, information books etc) to learn about the fire. There will be a focus on Samuel Pepys’ diary and how the fire spread. We  will learn about the dangers of fire and general fire safety. We hope that the Fire Service will visit to talk to us about the dangers of fire and how to keep safe. In Music we will learn a variety of songs linked to ‘fire’, including singing in a ‘two part round’. We will have the opportunity to experiment and perform with tuned and untuned instruments to create ‘fiery’ sounds. In Art, we will create a sketch book to record and explore the theme of fire. We explore ideas and will design, make and evaluate a Tudor clay tile. This term we will learn about life in a bakery. We will use this research to make our own bread.  We will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules.
