Today the children in Year 2 were debating whether or not “The Great Fire of London was the best thing that ever happened to London.” We discussed what a ‘peaceful’ debate looked like and they decided which side they supported more. It was hard to decide for some of them! Then we had a class debate – just like in the House of Commons. Lots of strong arguments were heard from each side.
What do you think?
Year 2 loved their trip to Staircase House on Monday.
They enjoyed dressing up as famous people from the Great Fire of London, such as Samuel Pepys and King Charles II. They learnt how we would build a house in 1666 using wattle and daub. They also learnt about fire marks and how fire insurance was made after the fire.
