I hope you’ve all had a lovely and relaxing break and are ready for Year 2. Miss. Graves and I are very excited about welcoming and settling your children into our new class. We have worked really hard in making sure our classroom environment is fun, engaging and learning focused. We have some amazing things planned for this coming year!
This half-term we will learn about the ‘The Great Fire of London’. Our class book is ‘The Tower Bridge cat’ by Tee Dobinson. We will be writing setting description based on London and also writing a newspaper article to report the horrific event. During this term we will be visited by the Derbyshire Fire and Rescue team to talk to us about the safety around fire. In our Design and Technology lessons we will be creating 3D models of buildings, thinking carefully about the importance of a stable structure. We will also be informed by our science experiment about the material which will be the most suitable materials to use for our buildings. With the help of the Fire and Rescue team we will be safely lighting them on fire to re-create the event of The Great Fire of London.
Our Class Name
Our Class name is taken after an Olympic gold medalist Charlotte Worthington, who has become Team GB's breakout star after winning gold with an impressive backflip in the BMX freestyle event. Charlotte has become an inspiration for our class as she fell in her first run but persevered and landed first ever front flip of 360 at a women's event. We want to aim for Gold just like Charlotte!
