This term we are learning all about the Great Fire of London. The children are really enjoying this unit and are very keen to find out lots of interesting facts.
We have been sorting items into past and present and are recognising different ways in which we can found out about the past. Samuel Pepys buried diary told us lots of information about the fire.
Here is a link if you and the children want to find out more.
We had a fabulous afternoon investigating objects which were buried in London and linked to the time of the Great Fire. The children pretended to be historians asking relevant questions and using the clues to try and answer them. They did a wonderful job.
Ask your child what they found out!
We also ordered the events of The Great Fire in chronological order.
