Spring Term - London's Burning

Our topic this term is called “London's Burning” where our learning will be based around The Great Fire of London. We have already begun to create our very own 'London' themed classroom, including a flaming baking shop and Pudding Lane. We can’t wait to see our learning environment grow as it is filled with the children’s wonderful work.

To follow our learning journey throughout the topic, each week you can see pictures and updates about what we have been learning about on the class one page below.

You can also look through the projects knowledge organisers to see what the children will be learning throughout the spring term.
