Our topic this half-term is called The Great Plague
During our History lessons we will be considering some of the following questions:
- What was London like in the time before the Great Fire of London in 1666?
- What other sources can we use to imagine what London might have been like?
- What was the plague and why was it a problem?
- Why did plague spread so quickly?
- What help was available?
During Geography, children will learn about the importance of taking care of the environment. They will consider environments at a range of scales from their classroom to the whole world. It will include issues around litter and waste e.g. damage to the environment; reducing the level of resource use; and reuse, as well as recycling, of resources.
Children will recognise how people can adversely affect, as well as improve, the environment. They will begin to identify and explain differing views that people have about topical environmental and geographical issues.
Our English lessons will focus on three text types: Fairy Tale, Classic Narrative Poetry and Newspaper Reports.
