Today we have been using Textease to create a picture of what London must have looked like as it was burning down.
Today the the children were very excited to find a letter had arrived for them from a man named Samuel Pepys! He explained that he would be coming to visit and that he had left some clues about our new history topic around school. The clues were hidden in some strange places, including the fridge in the staff room! The final clue explained that our new history topic would be about the Great Fire of London. We watched a video clip which introduced what happened and who Samuel Pepys was. The children worked in groups to discuss what they had found out and order some pictures of the events!
