Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin!

The Three Little Pigs have been busy this week building their houses of straw, sticks and bricks. 

Class 1P enjoyed a bit of 'Hot Seating'. 
The children had the chance to take on the roles of the pigs and the Big Bad Wolf while being questioned by classmates. 

If I were a little pig I would build my house out of...

Chocolate!  Sweets! Gingerbread! Snow!

The Great Fire of London

We sequenced the events of the Great Fire from 
early Sunday morning 2nd September to Thursday 6th September 1666. 

We talked about the reasons why the fire spread so quickly from Thomas Farrinor's shop in Pudding Lane:
  • There was no rainfall in the summer of 1666, London was very dry and the Thames River was low. 
  • The houses in London were made of wood and very close together. 
  • The streets were narrow and dusty. 
  • Inside their homes, people used candles for light and cooked on open fires. 
  • A fire could easily get out of control because in those days there were no fire engines or firemen to stop a fire from spreading. 
  • The fire spread quickly due to a strong wind from the east. 

It's been another busy week of learning in Year 1. 

Have a good weekend!
