Term 6 - London's Burning
It's 1666 and Vlad the flea and his friend Boxton the rat, love eating and biting their way around London. Life as a flea can be so much fun, but one night in the bakery in Pudding Lane, a light flickered gently in the corner and smoke curled around the ceiling...
Vlad and Boxton are caught up in a fire that threatens to destroy them, along with most of the City of London. Will they manage to survive and will their knowledge of London help them to escape?
There isn't much Vlad doesn't know about the fire, the people and London, but how much do you know and are you the next Samuel Pepys?

Term 5 - Exciting Explorers
This term our topic is Exciting Explorers and our core text is The Green Ship by Quentin Blake. We will go on the journey with the children in the text as well as learn about other famous explorers such as Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. To be a true explorer you need courage , a sense of adventure and plenty of common sense. Foxes - are you ready for the adventure?
Two children find the Green Ship when they climb over the wall into what is more like a forest than a garden. The ship has bushes for bows and stern and its funnels are trees; a small garden shed on an ancient stump is the wheel house and in command of the ship is the owner of the garden, old Mrs Tredegar. Throughout the summer she and the Bosun and the two children sail the Seven Seas visiting exotic faraway places and having wonderful adventures. Where would you choose to go?

In science, we went on a plant hunt and then completed some research about what plants we found.

We got to have an Easter egg hunt in the nature area...
We even had time for some outdoor learning for maths!
WORLD BOOK DAY
We were very lucky to have a famous author, Saviour Pirotta, visit our school virtually for the day on Friday 5th March. Saviour Pirotta is the best-selling author of over 100 children's books. Based in the UK, his work ranges from novelty titles for toddlers to short novels and collections of fairy tales. As a child he used to write poems, stories and plays which he performed with friends under a huge mulberry tree in a field. He sold his first work to a local radio station for five pounds and in 1982, he moved to England with the hope of becoming a professional writer. His first book, Let the Shadows Fly, was published in 1986. Since then he has established himself as a versatile writer with many bestsellers to his record. He writes in English but his work has been translated into 28 languages to date.
