We have been learning lots about Samuel Pepys, who recorded the events of The Great Fire of London in his diary! The children hunted around the classroom for statements about Pepys and then had to decide if they were true or false - everyone got them right so we must have some big History fans in 2DP!
We have been learning about The Gunpowder Plot. The children went into the hall and imagined being Guy Fawkes in the cellars underneath the Houses of Parliament, creeping about with the gunpowder before being discovered by King Charles! They then drew pictures showing the scene.
