English 

This week we are getting creative with poetry! We will start by investigating narrative poems about the Great Fire of London and then create our own. After that we will also be having a go at creating our own poems using our sense and finally a shape poem.

Maths

Last week we explored what equal groups are and how this applies to fractions before honing in our skills with finding half. We are continuing our fractions unit this week by recognising and investigating quarters and thirds.

Curriculum news:

Fire! Fire! is our topic this term and you have made a superb start at researching what life was like during the 17th century and the main events of the fire. We will now being seeing what fire safety looks like now including making our own fire engines.

***In order for us to create the best junk model fire engines possible, could we please ask for you to bring in any boxes (smaller than a shoe box if possible) and milk bottle lids by Thursday morning. We really appreciate it and hope you love what we create!***
