Thank you to Aaryan and Avani for telling us all about the
Hindu celebration of Diwali. Aaryan gave the class a lovely card and Avani
brought in two special little ornaments to show us. You may have heard
fireworks outside this evening to mark the celebration. Happy Diwali!
As we are in our final week of learning about the Great Fire of London,
today was time to recreate the event for ourselves. After carefully making
our own houses and assembling the miniature model of London, we went
outside this afternoon to watch Mr V set fire to the mini Farriner’s Bakery
on Pudding Lane. Thank you to all the other year groups for coming out to
watch. We hope you enjoyed it and the video will be on here soon.

job of showing us what happened on each day and what it might have been
like to be there.
