Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero
We had such a wonderful time that we wrote a recount about our day. Our learning there also enabled us to put our computer skills to good use and create leaflets to explain to other children how the fire service has changed over the past 350 years.
To learn more about how the fire service has changed from the past to the present we had a wonderful day out to the 'Greater Manchester Fire Museum'. The volunteers gave us an amazing insight into how different fighting fires was in 1666 compared to now.
After looking at the timeline of events that led to the Great Fire and the reasons why it spread so quickly we became newspaper reporters for 'The London Gazette.'
We shared many interesting books about Samuel Pepys and watched a very amusing 'Magic Grandad' episode where we got to go back in time and meet Samuel on person! Again, linked to our literacy work on character descriptions we worked together to construct information about Samuel's life and we then recorded this individually.
To learn about what life in 1666 would have been like we watched special 3D film footage which took us through a recreated journey through London over 350 years ago. Combined with our writing on literacy, we worked with a partner to write sentences about what we would have seen, heard, smelt, tasted and touch. We then used these to write our individual senses poems.
Look how hard we have worked on our timelines.
So we could understand how London has changed from the past to the present we created a timeline of London now and then.
Linking in to the theme of knights year 1 took time to look at lots of books about knights and castles whilst year 2 enjoyed their time in forest school. We learnt all about Knights and their jobs. Linked to our design and technology work we designed and made our own knight's helmet. More images can be found on the process on our 'Design and technology' page.
As part of looking at the history of the legends of dragons and fire we learnt about the life of St. George, the patron Saint of England. We made some super 'lift the flap' information books about him.
