Yesterday, Partake Theatre came into school and we acted out scenes from The Great Fire of London! The boys had to wear waistcoats and the girls had to wear skirts.
King Charles II wore a curly wig and a black hat with a feather in it. We really enjoyed it because we learnt all about how the fire started. We learnt that the baker, Thomas Farriner forgot to put his oven out with water and sparks from the oven started the fire. The fire raged for 4 long days. We talked about how people tried to escape the fire by getting in boats.
Thank you to all the parents who brought in their pound to help us have this fantastic experience!
Today we went around the school grounds looking at living things and their habitats.
We saw lots of wildlife outside! We saw a frog and worms in the mud near the polytunnel. (Owen) We found a centipede under compost and learnt that they have 100 legs because ‘cent’ means 100 (Samuel)
We saw native slugs and slugs eggs! (Brody) We saw a new bud growing on a plant. (Xander) We saw some native birds, including robins, sparrows, magpies, wrens and a grey tit in the hedges (Jorgie & Jayne)
