Autumn Term - Pudding to Pepys
Our Autumn Term always begins with an exciting and engaging start. We will be going on a journey to explore our concept question; 'Was the Great Fire of London (GFOL) a good thing?'. During this topic, the children will be learning more about the effects of the GFOL on the city of London and how it impacted on the lives of the people who lived there during the 17th century. We shall be exploring how the people fought the fires, why the fires happened and compare firefighting in the 17th century to that of the 21st century. During our time on this topic, we shall also be learning about a man called Samuel Pepys and his impact on the GFOL. Year 2 will learn how his life changed and influenced this time and the impact he has had on history itself.

The Great Fire of London - Susanna Davidson
