Our topic for this half term is the Great fire of London.
We will be learning about the timeline of events.
We will then have a whole day of learning, where we will focus on who Samuel Pepys was, how firefighting has changed and making Tudor houses. We will finish off the day by setting fire to our houses to see how quickly the fire could spread.
Great fire of London day
In the afternoon our parents came in and we built Tudor houses using cardboard boxes. We then set fire to them to show how quickly the fire spread.
Take a look at the photos of our day.
Our topic for this half term is the Gunpowder Plot.
We will be learning about who the plotters were, how the plot was carried out and how we remember the gunpowder plot now.

We will be learning what our local area was like 50 years ago from a visitor coming into school. We will also be learning about what Ipswich was like during the Victorian times.
