Year 2

This Autumn term, Year 2 will be learning about the history of The Great Fire of London. They will be carrying out research into how the event occurred, how the fire was stopped, what other disasters have happened since (Hull floods, Grenfell) and how things have changed since the event such as the emergency services, buildings, London and media coverage of disasters. They will use their art skills to recreate the fire and the children will also use their knowledge about the event to write diary entries, newspaper reports and descriptions from eyewitnesses.
