Year 1


Our topic for this term is London’s Burning. We begin the topic with Geography by exploring the UK and its capital cities with a focus on modern day London. In Science, we will continue to explore the seasons, we will now take a closer look at Winter and explore how the weather has changed, what effect this has had on plants and animals and how these changes compare with Autumn. We will also explore different materials such as plastic, wood and examine the impact they have on the environment. In computing, we will be grouping and sorting data.

After half term, we will travel back to the past and look at London in 1666. We will explore the structure of Tudor houses and make our own Tudor house as part of Design and Technology. In History, we will learn about the events of the Great Fire, how it started? Why is spread? And the reasons for why it is called the ‘great fire’. We will take inspiration from information about the Great Fire to create London Fire pictures using the technique of collage. We will also create our own fire dances in PE and listen to traditional songs and rhymes linked to London e.g., London’s burning.
