Chestnut Class Teacher: Miss D. Hook

This term our learning Challenge is:

We will be learning about when and how the fire started, the order of the events that happened and how the fire was put out.

Our questions include:

  • What was London like in 1666?
  • What happened in the Great Fire on London?
  • Why did the fire spread so far and stay alight for so long?
  • Who is Samuel Pepys?
  • How do we know what happened in the Great Fire of London?
  • How did they try and put out the fire and what would we do today?
  • Who was to blame for the fire?
  • What changes happened because of the fire?

As part of this topic we are trying to arrange a visit to Lyme Regis – the home of Mary Anning, more details will follow soon.


PE days are Wednesday (outdoor PE) and Friday (indoor PE). Children are to arrive at school wearing their PE kit for the day. Please make sure all PE kit is labelled with your child's name. We will be going outside as much as possible so please ensure this is suitable for all weathers.


Reading - Children are expected to read their reading book 5 times a week. They can also read other books from home. This should be recorded in their reading diaries by an adult, not the child. The reading books are changed on a Monday each week. Once the children have read 20 times, they receive a prize from Miss Skates!

Spelling - Spellings are sent home on a Monday and the children have a week to learn them. They will be tested on the Friday.
