  • Friday 19 November 2021 Friday 19th November 2021 Fire, Fire! This week we started learning about The Great Fire of London as we have become historians, looking for clues from the past. The children have been fantastic listeners and have asked lots of questions to help them learn more. Ask them and I'm sure they will tell you that the fire started in a bakery in Pudding Lane on Sunday 2nd September 1666. It was brilliant that the children noticed that the buildings were made of wood. They also noticed that we had seen some very similar when we went to visit Lacock last week. Well done Butterfly Class!
