Year One’s Fire of London Fact Finding

Year One are enjoying finding out more about the Great Fire of London this week. They’ve used the computers to explore an online game, pulling down buildings and putting out fires as well as considering the historical sources we use to find out about events that happened long ago. They’ve sorted pictures in to old and new, talking about how they know and giving reasons for their sorting. In English, they have begun to write their own story about their character who has to help get Mr. Pepys diary to him and then fight the angry fire! The children already know so many facts – why not see what incredible facts they can tell you? 🔥
