After much persuasion, and lots of paperwork, I finally agreed to burn the children’s houses! We chose a dry, not too windy, day and lined up our houses in an attempt to reenact the Great Fire of London. I made sure I took a lovely picture of each of the children with their art work so that you would still be able to see it! The children were rather excited as the flames licked their houses and started to sing London’s Burning.
As part of our superheroes topic, this week the Year 2s created a number story and turned their story into a comic strip. We had great fun using the comic life 3 app on the iPads. We hope that you enjoy reading our comic strips as much as we enjoyed making them!
We’re approaching the end of our topic on the Great Fire of London and would like to share some of our learning with you!
Below are some photos of display that the Year 2 made. Around the outside of the artwork, are the booklets the children created with facts that they have learned (both in lessons and during independent research) about the Great Fire of London.
We have also been learning to play London’s Burning on the ocarina. Here we are performing it in a two-part round!
Year 2, what fact would you like to share about the Great Fire of London?
