We have been learning all about what objects and buildings where around at the time of the Great Fire of London. We have looked at how the houses would have been built and how these would have set on fire easily.
Then we talked about what things people would have used to put out the fire, like fire hooks and leather buckets.
Today we thought about what the fire of London would have looked like when it began in 1666. We described lots of scenes, using adjectives to describe the setting. Then we used our senses to explore the smells and sounds.
We created some amazing artwork based on colour wash and silhouettes of the London skyline in 1666.
Take a look!
Here are some photos of year 1 taking part in the year 6 activities which they had designed and set up.
We did Circle Time and discussed how words can make us feel. Kind words make us feel soft and fluffy but words that are unkind feel scratchy!
