Topic

Read Fireman Jim and ask your child to stand up and step into the story and imagine they are seeing The Great Fire of London through Fireman Jim´s eyes. Ask your children to join in with actions (e.g. at ´he grabbed his fire-fighter hat. I’ve added actions to the sheet. 

Your children could make fire extinguishers (buckets, hose, etc.). Then they could search for any pretend flames you could draw on paper. When they have found the flames they can spray them with water using their extinguishers. Ask them – What do you think it would have been like being a fire-fighter during The Great Fire of London?

We’ve been talking about London and finding it together on a map. You could us Google Maps to find it together, along with any other family towns, cities and countries you can think of.

As usual, you will find more learning on Education City and reading on Bug Club and please email me if you have any problems on: a.sellers@gf.kwestacademy.com. 

 

Have a great week,

Mr Sellers
