This half term Year 2 will be learning all about the Great Fire of London.
At the start of the week Year 2 received a letter from the baker Thomas Fariner – it was written in 1666 so it’s taken a little while to get to us… Thomas explained that his bakery had burned down (it’s thought that the Great Fire of London started in his bakery after someone didn’t turn the oven off properly) and that he needed our help to cook some mouth-wateringly delicious scones for King Charles II.
Year 2 are always up for a challenge, so we learned all about writing and following instructions in our English sessions, and then followed the recipe to make the scones.
They really were delicious!
To help us understand how the fire spread so quickly through London, we learned all about Tudor style houses. Then we used our learning to work collaboratively to build our own models of a Tudor house.
They look pretty impressive, don’t they?
