Year 2 are now experts on the Great Fire of London! We have researched the story in detail and recounted the key facts.
This led to the children writing their own newspaper reports documenting the Great Fire. The class members were asked to use some exciting adjectives to add some suspense to their news reporting. A Word Wall containing some possible words was available.
We looked at how newspaper stories differ to other types of writing. Each class member was asked to include the important facts involved in the story. These were presented in the correct sequence.
Our rough ideas were presented on formal newspaper print template. Pictures were added to show how the fire started, how it spread and how it was finally put out.
