Autumn 1

This term our topic will focus on

'The Great Fire of London'.

We are very lucky to have the Freshwater Theatre Company working with us again this year.  They will use drama to teach us all about how the fire started and spread throughout the city.  We will become immersed in 17th century London as we try to battle the flames and put out the fire. 


We will also have a visit from the Fire Service who will teach us how to stay safe at home. 


In art and DT we will make models of 17th century houses and use them to recreate the 'Great Fire of London' in school. 

Check out our 3D models of the houses on Pudding Lane!
