Year 2 Great Fire of London Mar 18

Year 2 have been learning about The Great Fire of London this half term. The children learnt about famous people such as King Charles I and Samuel Pepys. We learnt about when and how the fire started in Baker Street in a bakery and that it spread so far and quickly because the houses were so close together. We found out that in 1666 amongst the most valuable items were cheese and wine which people buried in the ground as they abandoned the area affected. We discovered how the fire impacted and influenced changes to help us keep safe today.

For homework children were asked to create Tudor houses so we could re-create the scenario of the Great Fire in our own playground. Children were impressed by the amount of smoke and the rapid spread of the fire and recalled many facts.
