Autumn learning

 Topic: Could the Great Fire of London happen today?

We will be researching the Great Fire of London. We will research what life was like in the 1600s and why the Great Fire of London spread so rapidly. We will use our knowledge of fire safety to give reasons for the fire and share advice on how such a fire can be prevented in the future. We will also have the opportunity to use aerial maps in Geography to compare London in the 1600s to modern day London. Our artwork this half term will focus on the work of Sir Christopher Wren, which will involve developing our pencil and line drawing skills, to produce our own design of ‘new London’ in the role of an architect. In Computing, we will use the J2 Launch program to create posters of the events of the fire.

Topic: Can anyone make a difference?

We will explore important figures from the past and present who have influenced life today through the topic question ‘Can anyone make a difference?’ We will discover the inspirational work of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, discussing their roles as nurses. We will reflect on what these significant figures taught us and research how hospital care has changed over time. Art lessons this half term will be inspired by Elizabeth Catlett’s print ‘Sharecropper’, where we will learn how to use lines to show tone and we will use this technique to draw a portrait. The portrait will be developed into a print. To round off the topic, we will learn about people who can make a difference at school, home and in their community, as well as how the children themselves can also make a difference.
