History off the Page- the Great Fire of London 19/04/2017

The children had a fantastic fun filled day and they have some exciting items to bring home over the next few weeks to show you!  Thank you for the amazing costumes! Photos of our activities will be uploadfed soon but here's a taster of the amazing learning that has been going on:

The morning comprised of the following workshops:

Barber Surgeon: The Barber Surgeon and assistants used facsimile tools and role play to bring this workshop to life.

Leather Workers: The Leather Workers designed and made tooled leather bookmarks.

Chandlers: The chandlers dipped beeswax candles.

School House: The children made and wrote with quill pens.

Metal Workers: The children made clay moulds used in metal castings.

Seamstresses: The children sewed blackwork muckenders.

Then the Great Fire was simulated using smoke effects and the children were tasked with putting the fire out!

The afternoon session focused on 'How do we know about the past?' and involved and archaelogical investigation using 'dig' boxes and the children became archaeologists!
