Year 2 had a fantastic day during their Great Fire of London workshop, immersing themselves in life during 1666. Their journey began on Cheapside Street, where they were introduced to the different jobs they would undertake during the day. They moved from candle making to using a pestle and mortar to create soap to writing letters to the King with ink quills. In between their tasks at the different shops, the fire progressed through London, and the children had to work together to use buckets of water and fire hooks in an attempt to stop the fire. During the afternoon, the children thoroughly enjoyed excavating and examining different artefacts to try and work out which shop they belonged to and how they may have been destroyed during the fire.
