The Great Fire of London

This term our topic is Time Travellers, we will be travelling through time in our time machine to explore different events in history.

Our first stop was The Great Fire of London.

Throughout this half term we have been learning all about what happened on Pudding Lane. We played an amazing game and got to help put out the fire using leather buckets, fire hooks and even gunpowder!

We reported for the London Gazette and wrote in Samuel Pepys diary and learnt all about how the people would have lived on Pudding Lane.

To finish off our learning about The Great Fire of London we made houses just like the ones that got burnt down! We designed them first and thought carefully about the styles and materials of the house. Together, with the year 1s in Rosen Class, we constructed our own Pudding Lane right here in Brixton! Luckily, ours hasn’t burnt down… yet!
