Term 2 - Fire, Fire!



Our Topic this term is ‘Fire, Fire!'. We will be exploring the events of the past. We will begin learning all about Guy Fawkes, and The Great Fire of London. We will even get the chance to build our own Houses in our Design and Technology lessons to recreate the events of The Great Fire of London. 

In Maths we will be focusing on shape. Learning all about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We will become investigators and go on  our very own shape hunt around the school! We will keep persevering with our counting, and trying hard to learn how to count in 2s, 5s and 10s.

During our English lessons this term we will be exploring one of our Power of Reading texts 'The lonely Beast'. We will be writing some amazing character profiles and poems. Our book inspired us to innovate the story to create our own beasts, using our super adjectives to describe them.
