“Exceptional Events”

WHERE WE ARE IN TIME AND PLACE: Significant events shape our lives. 

 Wednesday 5th December

As part of our learning journey this term we answered the question “How was life different during the war?” We learnt about Britain during World War 1 and the children wrote letters to share the things they had discovered.

We have also been learning about the Great Fire of London and the children wrote a description using interesting vocabulary.

Friday 30th November

As part of our Learning Journey we have been looking at the Great Fire of London. The children built their own houses and recreated Pudding Lane. We then set fire to the houses to experience how the fire spread.

We are using the title:

‘Exceptional Events’

As part of this topic we have been learning about inventions and discoveries that have impacted and influenced our lives. The children learnt about Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a famous engineer who designed the first passenger train line from London to Bristol; they learnt about the difficulties he overcame to achieve this, as well as discussing how his work has impacted our lives today. 

The children created their own bridges and experienced first hand the challenges that Brunel faced when designing his railway.
