An African Adventure
We would like to share with you our trip to Kenya.
After reading the story 'Handa's surprise' we were visited by a very important person called Akinyi. She was the project manager for a building company in Kenya who needed our help. She had asked us to build a school in Handa's village. How would the school look? What materials would we need? How are Kenyan schools different to our school?
Here we are building the school. But oh no! Disaster strikes! An elephant has trampled on the new school. What shall we do?
We made a documentary about our story and what had happened at Handa's new school.

with a respectful nod of appreciation to Sir David Attenborough who has inspired us all!
Fire Fire! The Great Fire of London
We travelled back in time to London in 1666. We met George, a young baker, who asked us for help. He was so worried about starting his new job at the bakery in Pudding Lane. He was worried he wouldn't be able to read the recipes and what equipment he might need. We wrote lists and instructions to help him.
But something awful happened....As George was leaving the bakery, he noticed the cinders in the oven still alight.
George discovered the fire in the early hours of the 2nd of September 1666. We imagined what would we do? What would we say? How would we help?
We must get the people of London to safety.
We received a message from King Charles.
CITIZENS OF LONDON, you are summoned to the Court of King Charles II IMMEDIATELY.
We had been asked to help rebuild the city of London. We got to work straight away. What shops might we have seen in London in 1666? What signs might have been outside the shop?
We wrote a report to the king, explaining the events leading up to the fire to ensure that it never happens again.
Enhanced provision in Alps
In Alps we have been enhancing our learning of the Great Fire of London through independent activities. Here are some of the things we have been getting up to!
We're going on an egg hunt...we're going to find a big one....
