London is Burning!

This half term Snapdragon and Honeysuckle class have immersed themselves in finding out about the Great Fire of 1666. Stories and facts have been read and written about. Newspaper reports have been draughted and written. Tudor houses have been designed and this week saw the re-enactment of The Great Fire itself as the houses designed were raised to the ground along with St Paul's Cathedral!

They banged their drums, gathered their belongings and ran! Grab all you can!  


All they can do is stand and watch as their homes are destroyed.....300 of them in total!

                                                                                                                                              It swept through the streets quickly                                                   St Paul's is ablaze!SAM_6936.JPG                                    SAM_6929.JPG                                  SAM_6930.JPG


     Sir Christopher Wren can only look on.                                             There's nothing these poor homeowners can do!                                                     The strong wind fanned the flames

                                                                                                      These eye witnesses said "The fire was out of control. We were terrified!"



                                                                                                       All this poor woman can do is sit and watch as her house is destroyed.


                       Lessons have been learned from the Great Fire of 1666. Houses are now built further apart, they are made of brick instead of wood and more firefighters were employed.

What's been going on in Snapdragon class?

Drumming workshop

Black History Month

Black History Month saw a week of discussion, debate, meaningful conversations, awe and wonder in Snapdragon class. I was so taken aback by the children’s thoughts and feelings about how black people were treated in the past and how much they took from listening and finding out about Rosa Parks. Posters were made, passionate, positive and proud messages were shared. Lola said, “C’mon guys. Let’s do this together with actions not words!” Senna said, “I just didn’t like the way black people were treated.” And Ollie remarked, “I was happy that Rosa said, “No I’m not giving my seat to you.”

Snapdragon Class also chose Rosa Parks as their Star Of The Week for Taking Care of Myself and Others. Rosa stood up for herself, her beliefs and for others, during her long life. She was influential in the fight for equality and justice for all. She stood up for what she believed in and wasn't afraid to say 'no' even though she knew there would be consequences. She most certainly used "Actions not words!" Snapdragon class have been so inspired by this determined lady. In the words of Snapdragon class, " Anyone can sit where they would like to on the bus!"
