The Great Fire of London

Today we started to learn about our topic for this term - The Great Fire of London. We enjoyed learning about how and where the fire started, what caused it to create so much damage and how the people at the time tried to stop it spreading. We will be learning much more throughout the rest of the term.

We were also intrigued to find an envelope in our classroom with a mystery diary entry inside... The burnt edges made it a little hard to read but we think that it may have been written by Thomas Farriner (the man who owned the bakery where the great fire started).
