Hello Year One.

We hope you all had a good day back at home learning yesterday! Here is your work for today.

Today we will be starting our topic about ‘The Great Fire of London’ by beginning with thinking about the fire service that we have available to us in this modern day. In a couple of weeks, we will start to compare this to how fires were dealt with at the time of ‘The Great Fire of London.’

Your task is to find out about fire engines and the main key parts of the vehicle.

We would like you to draw your own fire engine and label the main features.

Please write a fact or two that you have found out about fire engines – remembering to use capital letters and full stops correctly.

*Tomorrow you will be asked to write your own non-fiction page about a fire engine so while you are doing your research today- try to think of the information you could use for your page.

You are welcome to do research of your own on line, with the help of a grown up or you can look at links below to help you.

Here are three short pages of information to read to get you started.

Watch the video and begin by having a go at the ‘flashback’ page to recap on prior learning. Remember to pause the video before it gives you the answers to this first page.

Once your child has watched the main video, you could either print out the ‘Get the Activity’ pages with relevant questions linked to the learning in the video. You can also ‘Get the answers’ in the box below this on the web page.


If you prefer not to print out additional paper, then please ask your child to use everyday objects you may have at home such as lego bricks, buttons, counters... and arrange them in equal groups.

Draw and write, for example:

There are ...... objects altogether.
