We will taking inspiration from one of our favourite stories 'The Three Little Pigs'. In Science we will be carrying out experiments to test the strength of different materials to see which would be the best to build a house from.

We will also be learning about the Great Fire of London and what caused the fire to burn for so long. We will be comparing what happened to what it would be like today to see how things have changed. In DT we will be building our own Tudor houses and burning them down in our own great fire.
