What happened on Pudding Lane?

This term we will be learning about what happened on Pudding Lane to cause The Great Fire of London in 1666.

We will be using a range of high quality texts including, Vlad and the Great Fire of London by Kate Cunningham and The Great Fire of London (anniversary edition) by Emma Adams and James Weston Lewis.


In science we will start our new topic by researching the properties of bread and dough, before them moving on to the properties of the materials used to build houses.

To find out about what we will be learning about in other areas of the curriculum, you can view our topic web here: Topic web Summer 1- Year 2


Please remember that every child in school needs to bring a water bottle to school every day. Wellies should also be in school every day.

The windows and doors will largely remain open at school to ensure good ventilation, as a result of this, you may wish to ensure your child has lots of layers to keep warm.

For term 5, PE lessons will be on Wednesday and Thursday.  Due to new procedures to keep everyone safe, children should come to school in outdoor PE kit when they have PE.

Please ensure that all items of property that come into school are clearly labelled with your child’s name. 

Please do let us know if you have any questions at all. Due to current restrictions, please try and use class dojo for communications or contact the school office to arrange a phone call or meeting.
