Year 2 Travel Back in Time
Year 2 visited Staircase House to consolidate their work on The Great Fire of London.
In the morning, they dressed up and re-enacted the Great Fire of London as Samuel Pepys household. They created their own biscuits to bake in the bakery on Pudding Lane, where the fire started. After the fire started, they formed bucket chains to try to put out the fire.
In the afternoon they had a workshop on The Plague and found out all about 'The Plague Doctor' and what actually went into the 'Pocket Full of Posies' from the nursey rhyme ' Ring o, Ring o, Roses'
Finally, they finished the day by creating their own wattle and daub walls, just as the buildings in 1666 would have been created.
Phew, a very busy but brilliant day!
