Year 2 Girls Travel Back to the Great Fire
14 October 2016
Year 2 girls travelled back in time to September 1666 to visit the scene of the Great Fire of London.
They experienced the four and a half days of the fire as it spread and people tried to extinguish the flames.
The girls became apprentices at a variety of workshops. They made pomanders, leather bookmarks and herbal medicines. They also carried out role play activities, helping to put out the fire with leather buckets and water from the well.
Everyone had a wonderful day with Master Craig and we hope he visits us again. Many thanks to the parents who gave up their time to help us.
