Autumn Term 2017
Our topic this term is called "Fever, Fire and Fashion". We will be taking an exciting journey back in time to 17th Century London in the era of the Plague and the Great Fire. We will be learning about life in London at this time, finding out about the effects of both the plague and the fire and how these events shaped the London we know today. We will find out about the prominent people of the time; King Charles II, Sir Christopher Wren and the diarists Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn. We will also learn about the flamboyant fashions and the kinds of entertainments people enjoyed.
In Science we will be exploring changes in materials and the effects of light.
The topic will provide many opportunities for the pupils to compare their lives with those of people in the 17th century and it should prove to be both fun and fascinating.
