Autumn Term

Baking Bread

As a hook to our new topic on the Great Fire of London and for our new English unit on Instruction writing, we followed a recipe to bake our own bread rolls. We had to listen carefully to instructions in order to bake safely and hygienically. We collected vocabulary associated with recipes and instructions, such as adverbs of time and imperative verbs. We also used our senses to describe the bread rolls at each stage of the recipe. Whilst we waited for our turn to become a baker, we used our play-doh to experimented making different shaped bread rolls. We had lots of fun trying to copy the images. The plait was extremely challenging! Our classroom smelt like a bakery all day.

The History Man

As an introduction to our new topic on the Great Fire of London, the fabulous Mr Cadle, aka 'The History Man' visited us in school to bring our topic to life. He came dressed as a typical man from the 17th Century and he brought an array of artefacts and objects with him to show us what life was like in 1666 and how the fire started, spread and was finally extinguished. He is incredibly knowledgeable and it was a fantastic day for all. Mrs Jackson even got to ignite some gunpowder on our playground to show us how they used it to blow up the houses to stop the fire spreading. Watch the exciting video below. 

We would like to say a massive thank you to Mr Cadle for sharing all of his knowledge and artefacts with us.
