Year 2 have started work on their Great Fire of London topic. We have looked at a timeline to see where the major event fits in with other historical periods.
The children then researched how the Great Fire started. We held a class discussion to think about what it might have been like to have seen this event.
We have used our Great Fire knowledge during our English lessons. Year 2 are currently focussing on the use of adjectives. Each class member was asked to list adjectives to describe the Great Fire.
Finally our Year 2 artwork has also been based around the Great Fire. The children have produced some striking collages showing the colours that might have been seen in the Great Fire. Each class member was asked to experiment with techniques that they thought could best represent the Great Fire.
