Year B Autumn 1 - Bright Lights, Big City

Bright Lights, Big City


Put on your best outfit because you're invited to have tea with the Queen. Use your best manners and comb your hair as one will not be amused if you don't!


What do you know about England's capital city? Let's find out about London, including it's history, transport and famous landmarks.


Step back in time and discover what happened in the Great Fire of London. Where did it start? How did it end? Bake bread like they did in the bakery on Pudding Lane.

Let's set off to the big city....

In Year 1 we love to learn outside the classroom, our first project is to clear the flowerbeds in preparation for planting and growing vegetables.

We set fire to one of our Tudor house models and watched as the fire spread to the others. We used buckets of water like they did in 1666 to try and put the fire out.



Emile created a fantastic model of a Tudor house for homework. 


We have been learning about the important job of Queen Elizabeth II...

Did you know she is the world's longest reigning Queen?

Did you know her favourite dogs are corgi's?



We also found out about another famous Queen...

Queen Elizabeth the I.

Here is a painting of her during her coronation. Can you spot the orb, crown, sceptre? 


Did you know...

She wore a red wig when she got older.

She threw her shoes at people when they made her angry.

She picked her black teeth in public - yuk!



Fantastic diary writing Tilly, James and Dakota!



​​​​​​​Look at Dakota's model of the London Eye! Wow!
