Year 2 visited Selly Manor where we learnt all about the Great Fire of London. We had so much fun dressing up and re-enacting the story of when Samuel Pepys saw the fire. We also played olden day games and tried on different armour. The helmets were very heavy! Next week we will be using our knowledge to write our own diaries about the Great Fire!
Year 2 have enjoyed learning about a variety of story settings and have a discovered a whole range of new adjectives to use in their writing. We loved exploring the forest classroom where we used our senses to gain further ideas for our setting descriptions.
We are looking forward to our trip on Tuesday 3rd October to Selly Manor!
Please remember to wear school uniform, sensible school shoes and bring a coat to wrap up warm!
