Previously in the Pandas class...

'The Great Fire Of London'

We stepped back in time to 1666 to explore the event itself and looked at diaries from real life people who were there at the time like Samuel Pepys.

We had an amazing WOW day.We took part in some exciting activities including candlemaking,weaving and rat catching!










In the afternoon we became archaeologist's and dug for evidence of where the fire started and the jobs people did in 1666.

Boat Making









'Food,Glorious Food'

We started off our topic with a 'WOW Day' thinking about ourselves,what it means to be healthy and investigating how we can change food.

We had a fantastic visit to Wagamama's where we got to make vegetarian noodles.













We loved our exotic animal encounter. We had lots of different animals to look at and handle including a massive snake!!

'Nuts About Nature'

We learnt about our local environment,named plants and trees and what made them grow healthily.

We learnt a medieval dance, watch the video below to see how we did.












We really enjoyed having a go at 'fencing' just like a Knight.

World Book Day - We enjoyed bringing our favourite book to school.

"I really like this book because at the end Mrs Armitage's bike brakes and she chooses roller skates"
"I like this book because the Genie comes out of the lamp when Aladdin rubs it and gives him 3 wishes"















'Out Of This World' - We started this topic with a WOW day where we all dressed up as aliens!

We learnt about Neil Armstrong, explored key events in his life.We also investigated gravity,pushes and pulls and materials.We designed and made space buggy models and used paints and pastels to create space pictures.

We enjoyed our visit from a planetarium. We looked at planets, the earth and night and day and star patterns.
