In history this term we have really enjoyed finding out lots of facts about the Great Fire of London and the Plague. The children have liked writing diary entries, letters and fact sheets to record the information.
In art we have been learning about the works of Kandinsky. We have been inspired by his art ‘Concentric circles’ and we had a go at making our own using different materials. We have also enjoyed looking at his abstract pieces of art and deciphering what the pictures hidden in them are. We have had a go at making our own abstract art too. We wonder what you could see hidden in them?
We have been learning about electricity in science this term. We have made our own safety posters on the LearnPads, made a circuit, investigated conductors and written explanations about where electricity comes from and how it is made.
The Great Fire of Northway
We made our own Tudor Style houses so that we could set them alight to depict the Great Fire. The children got to see how the buildings would have caught fire so quickly back in 1666. We enjoyed watching the flames burn the model houses.
