Great Fire of London

5th January 2018
Today we have had our first enrichment activity of 2018 - the Year 2 Great Fire of London Day.
The children have had fantastic fun learning all about the history, traditions and  customs of the 17th Century.
 
We spent the morning visiting some 17th Century 'shops' and trying our hand at the crafts of the Baker, Leatherworker, Apothecary, Candlemaker and Seamstress amongst others. In the afternoon we turned archaeologist and dug out artefacts from the remains of the fire to see what we could find out about the inhabitants of the houses.
