The story of The Gruffalo which will will be retelling in our Literacy lessons.

Autumn 2 - Fire! Fire!

This term we’ll be looking at the Great Fire of London. Using our detective skills to compare life in 1666 to that of present day. As an introduction to our topic, we will write and record our very own poems. To land our topic, visitors from the local fire service will come to help us learn about what they do. This links in with our safety week where we talk about fire safety and lots of other ways to keep us safe.
