We had a visit from Reverend Maureen and Reverend Diana to talk to us about ‘Holy Week’ the last week of Jesus life on earth. 

In Design and Technology this term we have researched hand puppets, learnt how to cut and join materials, designed a puppet and applied our new skills to make and evaluate our design. 

As part of our work on The Great Fire of London, we made model Tudor houses and re-enacted the fire by burning them and completing the bucket challenge. What a fun way to end our history topic.
