Year 2 have been learning about the Great Fire of London in class.
They had a very special interactive lesson yesterday when the prayer room was transformed into a scene from the Great Fire of London. The children were transported back in time with lights, smell and scenery allowing them to immerse themselves in their diary entry about the Great Fire, just the way Samuel Pepys had written in his diary all those years ago.
Take a look at our Great Fire of London:
In 1666, a huge fire that started in a tiny bakery burned down most of London. The fire was so big that it was called the Great Fire of London.
We know what happened during the fire because people back then wrote about it in letters and newspapers – Samuel Pepys wrote about it in his diary.
