This afternoon, 2G had the pleasure of walking to New Cross fire station to learn more about fire safety in relation to our topic – The Great Fire of London.
We had a tour around the station, explored the fire engine and even got to shoot water out of a hose! It was a great day, check out a few of our snapshots from the afternoon below.
To kick start their topic ‘Designing for Life’, Year 5 were lucky enough to take part in a Lego workshop in which they designed and built a lego city.
Beginning with modest houses (and ending with grand hotels!), the children worked in groups to make the various elements of the city that they needed. They created circuits with bulbs to light their buildings as well as motors; the city even had its own working railway!
The children learned a huge amount, worked brilliantly in their groups and had lots of fun at the same time.
