We hope you all had a lovely time over the school holidays. Now that the weather is cold we are heating things up by learning about London and the Great Fire!

This term the children will be going on a virtual tour of London taking in all the tourist sites including Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London and Trafalgar Square. They will also be going back in time to 1666 when the Great Fire of London started to discover what actually happened to England’s capital city. As part of this they will recreate a bucket run to work as a team of fire fighters. The children will also learn about fire safety and have some tips about how to stay safe at home.
