Working Together, Aiming High, Shining Brightly
Let your light shine before others - Matthew 5:16
Year 1 and 2 are taught by Mr Dowe and Miss Lucas.
This term, our topic is London
Our topic this term is all about London. The children will be learning about the continents of the world and then zooming in on the countries that make up the UK. They will name the countries and capitals and learn their key characteristics. They will then focus on London and learn about some of the key features found there. Afterwards, they will move on to learn about a major historic event that happened in London....The Great Fire! The children will learn about the events leading up to, during and after the fire. They will learn about significant people including Samuel Pepys and Sir Christopher Wren and how the fire shaped what London is like today.
