Bright Lights, Big City Curriculum Map

Home Learning Project for Bright Lights, Big City.

 

Bright Lights, Big City is all about our capital city, London. We will be learning about its famous landmarks, how you travel around, the Great Fire of 1666 and Queen Elizabeth II

 

For the Home Learning project we would like you to either

  • make a fact file for visitors about some of the landmarks such as Buckingham Palace or Big Ben.
  • make a model of one of the landmarks using boxes, tubes, cartons and anything else you want.

 

We think this website might help you as it has lots of interesting facts and great pictures. 

Good luck with your project! We can't wait to see what you have made.

Bring them into school on the week beginning 12th February 2018.

Green Lane Masjid

Monday and Tuesday 15th/16th January 2018

 

This week we have been to Green Lane Masjid to find out more about Islam. We were taken on a tour of the mosque and were shown where worshippers wash before praying. Our guide, Umar, told us the history of the mosque. We were amazed to hear that the building used to be a swimming pool! 

Umar showed us where the Imam stands and we even had a go at talking into the microphone.

Engage- The Royal Tea Party

Friday 12th January 2018

 

For the Engage part of our new topic, we went into the hall for a royal tea party. We learned to sing the National Anthem and then we made our own Union Flag. We got plenty of chance to wave them as we soon had a very special visitor- the Queen!

We also learned how to do the Lambeth Walk- a traditional dance that Londoners did in years gone by. Finally we sat down for a well earned picnic. We had scones with jam, cookies and cake.

Collective Worship

Friday 12th January 2018

 

Today we thought about new year’s resolutions- a promise that people make to themselves at the start of a new year. We thought about things that we could try to improve such as our health, fitness and school work.

Friendship Day

Thursday 11th January 2018

 

The day started with an assembly by Mrs Simpson. She read the story ‘Have You Filled A Bucket Today?’ We fill each other’s imaginary buckets with kind words and actions each day but if we are unkind to someone then we take away from their bucket.

Later we made friendship paper chains and cards amongst many other things.
