We have been working on our ball skills. We found that the further away you are the harder you had to throw the ball to each other to pass to your partner.

Diwali - Diva Lights

We found out how the fire spread in the Great Fire of London and got to dress up as rich and poor people.
The Great Fire of London
Children have been finding out about the Great Fire of London and the key events that happened. In English we have listened to the story of VLAD (a flea) and Boxton (a rat) as they try to flee the burning London buildings. Children have sequenced events of the fire and written about key facts they had recalled. They have created charcoal pictures of buildings on fire, used lego to build houses and a drawing app to make pictures of London on fire.
We started the Autumn Term focussing on listening to our bodies as we exercised and noticed what happened when we were very active and then what happened when we started to cool down.
We have been thinking of the value of a number and different ways to make a two digit number.
