Great Fire of London Recreation! 


On Friday 30th November we re-created the Great Fire of London. We thought about what it was like back in 1666.

As a part of our Fire & Ice topic, the fire service visited. They even dressed Miss Smythe up! We had such fun learning about fire safety.

At Hillshott Infant and Nursery school we follow the PenPals handwriting scheme. Our younger children are introduced to four main characters which help them to memorise the sequence for writing each letter correctly. The key thing to remember is that all letters start from the top
(apart from d and e).


Pattern practice and ‘play’ writing are an important part of handwriting development. Your child will be practicing letter formation in a number of exciting ways: in sand, using paint, in the air, on the interactive television screens and iPads, as well as on paper with a pencil!
