This week, Year 2 have been exploring The Great Fire of London using primary sources of information. A man called Samuel Pepys watched the fire and described what happened in his diary. Because of him, it is possible to imagine how the disaster would have been reported had television news existed in those days. His diary entries inform us what it was like during the five days that London was on fire.Year two now understand how it would have felt to be in London at the time.
Finches and Swallows have used their imaginations to write ‘A day in the life of Samuel Pepys’.
