Put on your best outfit because you’re invited to have tea with the Queen. Use your best manners and comb your hair, as one will not be amused if you don’t! What do you know about England’s capital city?
This half term our topic is called Bright Lights, Big City and we will be finding out all about London, including its history, transport and famous landmarks.
Step back in time and discover what happened in the Great Fire of London. Where did it start? How did it end? Create a model of the bakery on Pudding Lane, then burn it to the ground to recreate the Great Fire. Stand well back and watch how the flames spread. London’s burning! London’s burning! Fire, fire! Fire, fire! Hang on, there’s someone new in town. Plan a tour for Marley the Meerkat (he’s come all the way from Zambia, you know) making sure he takes in all the sights and sounds of London before he finally meets his family at London Zoo. Are you ready for the bright lights of the big city? Hop in a black cab and enjoy the ride.
Above is the online learning timetable for Class 1. There will be 4 live lessons led by myself everyday (except Friday) via Zoom. In each of these lessons we will be learning phonics, literacy, maths, foundation subjects and story time. All of the children's work for the day will be shared with you via Microsoft Sway. A link will be shared for Sway each morning on Class Dojo. The Zoom link details will stay the same for each live lesson and this link will always be available on Class Dojo.
As always I will be available to answer any questions you have on Class Dojo or if you prefer to speak to me then please message me and we can arrange a phone call.
I know that this is a very difficult time for everyone but together we can help and support our children to do the best they can. Take care everyone and please let me know if I can help in any way. Mrs Towers x
