Through our topic work we will be aiming to answer our topic question...

 

Did any good come from The Great Fire of London?

We will kickstart our learning with a theme day all about

The Plague of 1665. We will be taking part in lots of fun and informative activities to start our topic.

 

 

Our learning will then move on to work on The Great Fire of London. We will be finding out about the differences in London now and in the past. This work will link well to support our writing too! We will then research the events of the great fire itself; how it started, spread and came to an end.

 

 

Art and D.T

 

In art, we are focusing on the work of the famous artist,

Antony Van Dyck.  Van Dyck was most famous for his  portraits and so we will be learning how to create portraits and self portraits. We will use this knowledge to inspire our own portraits of Samuel Pepys in the style of Anytony Van Dyck.

 

 

     

To link to our history work we will also be creating the London skyline using a colour was background and silhouettes.

 

Our DT work will be based around food - baking bread in our school kitchen ( not in the bakery on Pudding Lane!) and finding out about the process of baking bread.

 

Finally, at the end of our topic, we will be creating London in box models to burn in our very own great fire!

 

Before we start the fire we are visiting Mansfield Fire Station to learn about fire safety and the work of our local firefighters!

Computing

Our Computing work will, as always, involves work around E-Safety and knowing how to stay safe online. Our main focus will be learning how to use the computer to support our daily work and using Purple Mash (Maze Explorers, Animated Stories, Coding)
