Year 1 - Ms Loizides & Mrs Rumson

Fire Fire!

Welcome to Year 1’s autumn term topic of Fire, Fire!  This term we are going to be amazing History Detectives. We will be climbing aboard our time machine and travelling back to 1666 and learning all about The Great Fire of London. Where did the fire start and who was Thomas Farriner?                                                                        

The Red Barn Junior Fire Safety Officers will paying us a visit to explain their job to us and how they help to keep us safe. We will then investigate our school to see what fire safety measures we can find. I think there’s quite a lot! We will also be visiting a real Fire Station. How exciting!

In Geography we will be looking at maps of the city of London and comparing the city before and after the fire and what London looks like today.

Through our Science topic, we will be exploring all types of materials and try to work out why London burnt so quickly. We will also compare houses from 1666 with the houses and flats we live in today.

In Literacy, we will be thinking about friendships and loneliness and how this makes us feel. But please don’t worry, because our story has a happy ending. We will be writing perfect poems and super stories whilst practising our sentences and handwriting.

In PE, we will be learning a dance based around the Great Fire of London. On Friday we will practise the field run: that is four times around the field. By the summer we should all be super fit runners! Please can we have PE bags in school for the whole week just in case we’re feeling really sporty and want to do extra PE.

In art, we will be looking at the work of Van Gogh and copying his painting of 'Sunflowers' using pastels. They can get very messy so we might need to wear an apron.

Welly Walks will be on Monday with our 'Muddy Monday' walks.

Our Library day is Wednesday and Book club is every Friday, so please bring in a book you would like to share with your group.

We are all keen to have a wonderful year together and fill our heads with lots of new learning!
