To celebrate the end of our Great Fire of London topic year 2 had a fantastic visit from the fire service. The children had a great time going inside the fire engine and looking at the heat sensor camera. They all got to have a go spraying the hose which they all enjoyed! After the firefighters gave them a fire safety talk and answered lots of interesting questions.
On Family Women morning year 5 made a model of the solar system. They used lots of different art skills to create their masterpiece in small groups. They all took it in turns to do different parts of their model. The jobs involved: painting, colouring,cutting, gluing and drawing. All year groups enjoyed lots of fun activities and more photographs will be available on the photo gallery.Year 6 enjoyed during family woman morning, analysing the impact of sentence lengths and considering the power of short sentences to add effect.

On Monday 20th January, year 2 enjoyed The Great Fire of London workshop. They have been really busy learning about this topic this half term and really felt it come to life. They learned all about how the fire started and why it spread so quickly. They also learnt lots about Samuel Pepys and why he was so important. The children had a great time dressing up and participating and there was also lots of laughing throughout the morning.
Here are Year 6 making traditional mince pies for their class party in our technology room. They really enjoyed rolling out the pastry and adding all the fruits in.
