On Friday, Year 2 took their model 17th Century houses onto the field. They arranged them into a street and then their teacher started a fire at one end of the row. The children stood at a safe distance, watched the fire spread, quickly destroying the houses and they were asked to consider the following questions:
What did you see? What did you smell? What did you hear? How did you feel?
They will now write a diary entry about the fire in the style of Samuel Pepys.
Take a look at the photographs, can you suggest some good words or phrases that the children could use in their writing?
