Zebra Class 2021-2022
Welcome to Zebra Class.
This term we are learning about the “Titanic”. We will have the library on a Thursday, P.E. on a Thursday afternoon and Forest School on a Tuesday afternoon. Please bring your named PE kit to school every Monday, it will stay in school for the week and returned to you on Friday.
We have had a wonderful week exploring the outdoors finding many different ways to use our stick, exploring the artworks of Claire Youngs and experimenting in science. It has been a great week and the children throughly enjoyed it, especially eating marshmallows!
World Book week
We have had a wonderful week exploring all things ‘Winnie the witch’. It all started on Monday when all the words disappeared from many of our non-fiction books in the library! The children have been busy writing new non-fiction information as well as an Art and DT project involving colour mixing and mechanisms.

Burning down Pudding Lane
On Friday afternoon, we re-enacted The Great Fire of London by burning down Pudding Lane. We went back in time and saw how quickly the fire spread, we were able to then use our knowledge to help put the fire out. Samuel Pepys was there writing his diary! We tried to use water squirters and buckets of water to put the fire out, but this did not stop the fire from spreading. Mrs Giles-Cox then used a fire hook to create a fire break. We have a great afternoon applying what we had learned this term in a real life situation.
As part of our Great Fire of a London topic we had a very special visit from the Fire Service to teach us all about fire safety. The children were so excited and learnt a lot from the workshop. Also this week the children in Zebra Class really enjoyed exploring the apparatus in gymnastics making the basic 5 gymnastic shapes.
