Topic

SPRING TERM 2020

HISTORICAL HEREOS

Happy New Year to everyone!  We hope you had a happy and peaceful Christmas time.

The children have come back into school brilliantly and they are excitied to embark on our new topic for the Spring Term where we are looking at Heroes drawn from History.

We are beginning by zooming into space to look at Neil Armstrong, Apollo 11 and the Moon Landings.  When the children have learnt lots of facts about him we will use this to write a report about him that we will present in a church coffee morning.  We will write letters as if we were part of the ship's crew with Christopher Columbus and design messages to be left in bottles!

As 2020 is the International year of the nurse and midwife we will look to Florence Nightingale and Marie Curie as Historical Heroes for inspiration.  It's 200 years since Florence Nightingale was born! We will use her life as an exmaple of compassion (our school value until half term) and write stories about helping others.

We will then contrast this by looking at how important the diary of Samuel Pepys was in understanding what happened in the 'Great Fire of London'.  We will sing songs, write poems and even make model houses based on this event.  If we are lucky we may also get the fire brigade to set fire to some of the houses that we make and watch how they put the fire out!

As you can see it's a jam packed term.  I know we are lucky enough to have some parents who work in the health service ..... it would be wonderful if any of you could spare ten minutes to tell the chidren about what you do!
