Fire! Fire! London’s Burning!

It all started at the bakery in Pudding Lane….

Keeping ourselves safe by standing well back from the fire…

The fire in Pudding Lane rages like an inferno…

As it burns out, the flames die away, leaving the ashes and cinders behind…

The fire fighters make sure the fire is completely put out by spraying it with their water hose. The water causes a great billowing cloud of smoke…

Then, just as we’re saying “Goodbye,” the fire service get a call and they have to leave quickly to attend a real emergency! p1040034

Bread Baking – Just Like Thomas Farriner (without the fire!).

This morning, we have been lucky enough to be joined by some lovely parents who have helped us to make delicious bread.  We combined our learning from several different areas during this exciting task:-

  • Reading – to help us follow the recipe carefully.
  • Maths – we weighed the flour and measured the water.
  • PHSME – practising our co-operation and communication skills.
  • History – finding out what Thomas Farriner’s job involved.
  • D&T – learning about food hygiene and food technology.
  • Science – looking at how materials change when they are heated.

Our loaves are currently proving for their final time and will be going into the oven in a few minutes.  At the end of the day, we will get to take them home and share them with our families.  Yum!

 

Whilst waiting for the dough to prove, our fabulous parents also read with us too.  Thank you!

The Dragon Slayer

In our English lesson today, we watched an animated film called The Dragon Slayer.  We talked about how the characters are feeling, wrote questions for the Dragon Slayer and used a drama technique called Hot Seating to explore the characters’ emotions.

You can watch the film at home by following the link below.

The Great Fire of London – Home Learning

We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the children who have brought in their fabulous home learning based on the Great Fire of London.  Your creativity is amazing and it is very clear to see how much you have learnt and remembered!  We are really looking forward to seeing what everyone else has chosen to do.  Please make sure the projects are brought to school this week.
