February - History off the Page

During February, History of the Page came into school to bring the Great Fire of London experience to year 1.

The children started the morning by becoming apprentices on the streets of London, learning skills common for workers of the era: leather working, metal working, sewing, etc.

As the children learnt their trades, the fire was spreading! With the flames drawing closer, the children must take action to stop it, including forming fire lines and tearing down local buildings. Will their efforts be enough?

In the afternoon, the children excavate what is left of the charred city, looking for personal belongings and important legal documents that can help the city start the process of rebuilding.
