Today we have been learning about why we wear poppies and what life was like 100 years ago to mark 100 years since WW1 ended.
We have been reading lots of poems about fire and performing them altogether. We have talked about the meaning of new words and we have been listening to see if we can spot the rhyming words.
The Great Fire of London
We have been busy creating a huge display of the Great Fire of London. We have mixed colours to paint the River Thames, dipped marbles in fire colours and rolled the marbles on black sugar paper to create the sky, drawn houses using charcoal and smudged pastels to create flames!

This week we have been busy following instructions for 'How to make a fruit salad'. We talked about washing our hands and cutting safety before we began. We peeled and chopped to make a yummy fruit salad! The next day we wrote some instructions that the other classes could follow just in case they wanted to make them too!

We decided that it was better to look and not touch as our fingers were warm too!Last week of the half term ...
