Term 2 Summary

This term we are learning all about The Great Fire of London! We will be answering questions such as:

-What happened during the Great Fire of London?

-How did London change after the Great Fire?

-How have fire engines changed, and how can they help put out fires?

 

In Art, we will be using paint to create our own artwork using hot and cold colours inspired by the work of Kandinsky.

 

In DT, we will be making our own moving fire engines! We will create our own designs whilst thinking about the appropriate materials needed to construct our fire engines. We will also be creating functional mechanisms usings wheels and axles to attach to our fire engines, ensuring they can move easily.

 

As part of Jigsaw this term, we will be exploring the new topic of ‘Dreams and Goals’. This will provide the children with the opportunity to think about and identify the ways in which they can be successful. The children will have a chance to set and work on their own goal or challenge in school which they will then have the opportunity to reflect upon at the end of term.

 

Finally, in Music we will be learning a spooky song called ‘Creepy Castle’ and we will be creating music inspired by birds and birdsong using musical instruments.
