Thank you to everyone who came to watch our class assembly today! The children have worked incredibly hard all week and sang and spoke beautifully. I was very proud of them.

The next three weeks will be as equally busy as we prepare our Nativity. All of the class have taken scripts or song words home to begin learning over the weekend. Please support your child with this and remind them to have their script in school every day so that we can practise.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Hi all!

We have had a really enjoyable week learning about our topic. On Wednesday we were visited by History off the page who treated the us to a wonderful re-enactment of life at the time of the Great Fire of London. We all dressed up in costume from 1666 and learnt about different jobs such as candle makers, surgeons and apothecaries. We learned why the fire spread so quickly and even had a go at putting out the 'fire' by working as a team in a bucket chain. After lunch we then 'helped' the Mayor of London to plan the reconstruction of the city by sifting through evidence from the fire in order to find information about lost buildings. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and the sessions really brought history to life for us.

Next week we will be busy preparing our class assembly and we hope to see lots of you there on Friday. We will also begin to practise our nativity which we will be performing, with the support of Year 1, on the 9th of December.

Here are some photos from our history day...
