Thank you fire fighters!

Thanks to our fire fighters for inspiring us and giving us so much information on Friday. We have used this for some fantastic learning this week.

In literacy we have been creating our own fire safety posters, using all of the key facts we have learnt from the fire fighters and from non-fiction books. Look out for our fire safety posters around the school.

In maths we found that the fire fighters had left pieces of their hose pipe all over the playground! So we decided to collect is all up, measure and compare the different lengths. We used rulers and tape measures and even multilink to measure the different pieces.

Next week we will be introducing Paddington bear to our learning. In English we will be exploring what he is like as a character, what he looks like and his personality.

In maths we will be exploring money with Paddington as he goes on adventures around London- paying for the many attractions he would like to see.

Enjoy the sunshine over the weekend,

The experts have arrived

wow, what a day we have had! As promised, we asked the experts to come in and help us kick off our learning about the great fire of London! We learnt about the uniform the fire fighters need to have to stay safe. We learnt new rhymes to help us remember to stay safe in different fire situations. We went on the fire engine, some of the children even drove it! We also put out a pretend fire with a real hose and squirt each other too! It was so much fun! Thank you to Hampshire fire and rescue service for a fantastic day!

New term, new topic

Our final topic for the year is…. LONDON!

We will be finding out about the Great Fire of London and Samuel Pepys diary. We will also be exploring fire safety (perhaps we may get some experts in to help us) and of course Paddington Bear will feature in our learning.

Today has been a particularly fun learning day! It was STEM day. So we investigated and explored the conditions that plants need to grow. As part of our science learning, the children had the opportunity to go on a plant hunt and plant a pea seed. We will be observing our growing plants over the next few weeks.

Have a lovely and safe weekend
