Welcome to Oak Class!
This term our topic is The Great Fire of London. We are really enjoying being history detectives and 'going back in time' to discover how the Great Fire started. We have carefully studied extracts from Samuel Pepys' diary and loved learning that he buried his parmesan cheese to keep it safe from the fire! We used all of the information that we have gathered to write our very own newspaper reports.
We have been thinking a lot about fire safety, we have made our own fire safety posters and were even lucky enough to be visited by a Leicestershire Firefighter! We learned lots about how firefighting has changed over time and some of us even got to dress up in real firefighter's clothes!
