We have had a great week in Otter class this week and the children are keen to learn after their half term break. The children have been engrossed in learning about the Great Fire of London. They have been excited to find out how it started and why it spread so quickly. They have been drawing on their topic knowledge from last term, when they found out all about timber houses from Tudor and Stuart times, to help them understand this. In English we are continuing this topic, and studying the book ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London’.
In maths the children have been very busy learning about money, using coins and notes to find different ways to make the correct money to buy things from Otter’s class shop.
In other news, Mr and Mrs Cage welcomed baby Bobby into the world on Friday 18th February weighing in at a healthy 8 lb 11oz. Both mum and baby are doing well.
