Summer 1: Around the world in a time machine!
This half term we are going back in time and looking at significant historical events such as: The Great Fire of London, the sinking of the Titanic, the first moon landing and the Gunpowder Plot.
We made our own houses and then burned them to show how quickly the Great Fire of London would have spread. We discussed the materials that the houses would have been made out of and why the fire would have spread so quickly.
We made our own moon buggies. We had to design and plan, practise sawing, paint, glue and attach different materials.
We had to saw the dowel so that we could attach the wheels.
