The other side of the text book is for you to complete some book reviews of the books you read – it’s important to continue your daily reading. When completing your book review please remember to think about all the different things we learn about during our rainbow reading lesson.

TERM 3

 

The Great fire of London – making a wattle and daub wall

This term we have been thinking about how life and homes have changed over time. As part of this we learnt about The Great Fire of London. We learnt about how the fire spread and created 3D models of tudor houses to help demonstrate the spread of the fire. The children learnt that the fire spread quickly because the houses were so close together and were made from wood. Here is the map we created to show the fire spreading –

Following on from this learning we worked in small groups to try and make wattle and daub walls. In a previous lesson we had learnt about how Tudor houses were made and that they had wattle and daub walls made from wood, mud, straw and clay. We experimented using straw and art paper straws to create our wattle and daub walls. We decided that the art paper straws were easier to weave and much less messy!

Safety day

On Tuesday 11th February we had our school safety day. We did lots of different activities focused around us feeling safe in school and at home. We also explored the importance of looking after our wellbeing. Please see the photos below of the different activities we completed –

To focus on our wellbeing we completed some mindfullness meditation and enjoyed doing some mindfullness colouring.

We thought about why relationships are important and what good relationships can give us.

 

We also learnt an internet safety song and learnt about Sid’s top tips for being safe on the internet.
