28 Jan Year 2 Visit the Museum of London Fire! Fire!
We went to the Museum of London and met a gentleman called Richard who told us all about the Great Fire of London through role play and storytelling.
He explained who started it, where it started and who was involved. We loved acting out the scenes. We had to pretend to ring the bell to sound the alarm for the fire. We had to pretend to be burning house and we also pretended to blow houses up with dynamite. Whilst at the Museum we explored the War, Plague and Fire gallery where we saw what houses were like in 1666 and how people lived. We also saw the flees that carried the plague and the rats they lived on. The conditions were filthy!
