How has fire safety changed since 1666?

The children have completed their final SATs booklet - well done Year 2! We know that the children have worked incredibly hard, and we are very proud of them. Around this, they have also done some brilliant learning. In English, we have travelled back in time to 1666, to find out in more detail about the Great Fire of London. The children had to make detailed notes of “who, what, when, where and how” in order to practise writing a newspaper report. In Maths, the children have not only practised and completed their reasoning booklets, but they have also been working on how to interpret statistical data from tally charts, block graphs and pictograms. In Art, the children have edited their collages, adding details through painting and pastels. In Science, we revisited the ‘eatwell guide’, and drew some meals on our plates which had a balance of food types. In RE, the children talked about why the Qur'an is important to Muslims, and what important rules they think people should live their lives by, and in History, we explored how fire safety has changed since 1666, comparing then to now.
