Today Year 2 had a special visitor who brought history to life at our school. We were joined by Patrick from History Off The Page who helped us do lots of learning about The Great Fire of London. We started by becoming apprentices from London during 1666 and made lots of great objects and items including scent bags, candles and clay pots. We then were able to travel back in time and help pull down houses to prevent the fire from spreading. The children also had the opportunity to dig up some of the objects that would have been buried during the fire. Finally, we were able to watch Patrick mould liquid metal into buttons. Next week we will be continuing to learn about The Great Fire of London and use our objects we made to inspire our writing.
