Year 1 Trip to the Museum of London & Monument

On Tuesday, year 1 braved the cold weather to explore the Great Fire of London at the Museum of London and the Monument. The Great Fire of London is one of the most well-known disasters in London’s history. It began on 2 September 1666 and lasted just under five days. One-third of London was destroyed and about 100,000 people were made homeless.

Year 1 channelled the spirit of intrepid historians and used their skills of historical enquiry to study a range of primary and secondary artefacts at the museum. They also spent time considering exactly what it might have been like to be caught up in the fire as it blazed through Pudding Lane. We are very grateful to all the parents who volunteered to support this trip.
