This week began with our “Wow Day” on Tuesday where we were transported back to 1666 and to the streets of London. We enjoyed engaging with the events of that famous night in September and enjoyed meeting Thomas Farynor and Samuel Pepys and of course the maid, who left the oven door open!!

We sequenced the events of the days while the fire raged and used what we had learnt to write a diary extract in the character of someone who had been present during the fire. 
In the afternoon, we made some Tudor houses from the time of The great Fire. They look great on our classroom window and helped us to think about the style and design of the houses and how they caught fire so quickly. 

In maths this week, we have been learning about ways to find a quarter of a number. We worked out that you can’t find a quarter of all numbers but only factors of 4. We also recapped on how to find a half as in order to find a quarter, you can find half and then half again. 

In Science, we had to solve a set of clues to help us find a code. We tried to remember everything we have learnt about materials in preparation for next weeks assessment. 

Finally, in RE, we have been thinking about places that are special to us in preparation for our visit to The Parish Church on Wednesday 25th March. ( look out for permission letters.) 

Next week we will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 5th March. Don’t forget you Paper Bag Princess.

How you can help!

Telling the time is tricky!! We will be recapping on O'Clock and half past and also looking at quarter past.

we will be using what we know about how many seconds there are in a minute and how many minutes in an hour to solve simple word problems. Anything you can do to reinforce this at home will be helpful. 

Talk about any plants we eat and which part of the plant we eat. Is it the leaf, the bulb, the stem or the flowers? 
practise 2, 5 and 10 times table facts and corresponding divisions
