Smart Trees School Trip
On Monday 3rd December, we were lucky enough to visit Smart Trees Christmas Tree Farm for our school trip. What a magical day we had! It was full of hunting around the Christmas trees (and getting rather muddy!), visiting Father Christmas and the elves, seeing the reindeer, visiting the enormous play park and, of course, not forgetting the fun trailer ride. We had a fantastic time and are glad we got to post our letters to Santa!
Visit from the Fire Service
Our topic this term has been the Great Fire of London. We have absolutely loved learning all about it, when it happened, why it happened and what we have learnt from it. We now know that the Great Fire of London is why we have the fire service today.
We had a very special visit from the fire service who brought their fire engine with them for us to explore. We were able to go in the fire engine and put on hats and we got to spray water from the hose! We almost sprayed Miss Palmer!
We now understand why the fire service is so important and why they are there to help us. We know who and how to call them if we ever need to.
Today we had a very special day full of cooking! In the morning we made ‘Great fire of London cakes’. We looked at making traditional cakes from the 1600’s. We worked in two groups and worked as a team to get the job done!
The in the afternoon we had a very special visitor from the kitchen. Marianne taught us how to peel, chop and grate vegetables. She then made it into a soup for us all to try. Everybody in year 1 and 2 tried the soup!
