Today we re-enacted the Great Fire of London. Over the last two weeks we have spent time designing and making a variety of buildings from 1666. We then burnt them down! To our delight, there was a strong wind today (like there was during the original fire) and everything caught fire very quickly. We sang London’s Burning as we watched.
What a blaze it was!
Today we went on a dragon egg hunt. We had so much fun collecting the eggs and were sure to hold them carefully in case they hatched. Once we were back in class we opened our eggs and discovered describing words that we sounded out in our talking partners. We then used these adjectives to create a dragon in teams. Check out the final outcomes.
From the next two terms, we are learning and writing about Neil Armstrong. Today, we had to work in teams to put in order a timeline of his events. We found it a little tricky putting the dates in order but we got there in the end and we now know lots of interesting facts about Neil Armstrong and how to draw timelines.
