London past and present.
We have had lots of fun learning about London in Anning class this half term.
We re-enacted The Great Fire of London by setting paper houses on fire to see how quickly the fire spread. We saw that the fire spread very quickly because it was windy, they were close together, and they were made out of flammable materials. We really enjoyed watching this and spoke about the difference in fire safety between now and 1666.
This week, we used our imaginations to go on a tour of London! We made our own train tickets and went on a train journey to Paddington station. Then, we learnt about all the fantastic landmarks which can be found in our capital city, and tried to build and draw these ourselves.
I have noticed a lot of us are keeping up with our reading and doodle maths so well done you guys! Keep it up.
Just one more week to go before the Christmas break, let's make this week the best one yet.
