I am missing you all! It was lovely to speak with some of you on Zoom this morning. Receiving the photos and videos of your home learning is my favourite part of the day - so please keep sending them to me! Below is your home learning for week five, I hope you enjoy the activities. You have been so creative in taking a topic and turning into a fun activity, like setting up a shop to practise using money - it is wonderful! Keep up the fantastic work, I am so proud of you all. 

 

Take care,

Miss Foreman 

 

PS - I had completely forgotten that Friday was a bank holiday so please ignore Friday's home learning. Enjoy your day together as a family! smiley

We have been using Talk4Writing to help us learn the story of 'Toby and the Great Fire of London'. We have learnt half of the story off by heart and we are going to create our own endings.

Curriculum Web - What's so 'Great' about the Great Fire of London?

Slides from our 'Meet the Teacher' Session

Our Science Experiment

 

We have buried four pieces of cheese, each wrapped in a different material, just like Samuel Pepys did during the Great Fire of London. We are trying to find out which material will be the best at protecting the cheese. Here are some photos of us setting up the experiment. We are going to dig up the cheese in a few weeks to see the results!
