We looked at the work of Gustav Klimt and used mirrors to create

The Great Fire of London

Year 1 have been learning about the Great Fire of London that took place in 1666.

They created vibrant pictures using a sponging technique and with silhouettes of buildings you can see the dramatic burning scene that would have been visible at the time.

Giraffes Can't Dance

We looked at the story "Giraffes Can't Dance" then wrote about something we enjoy doing.



Our writing is displayed on our collaged giraffe heads which make for a striking display.

The Three Little Pigs

We looked at this traditional tale in literacy.

This is our display of collaged characters, "Wanted" posters and character speech bubbles. You will also notice our storyboard, made up of symbols which we use as prompts

to help us re-tell the story.

You will see we have also been thinking about connectives.
