Year 2 revisit Pudding Lane

On Friday 19th January, Year 2 travelled back in time to 1666 to discover what it was like to be a Londoner during the Great Fire of London.

They enjoyed a hands-on workshop with History off the Page where they learnt to make wax candles, worked in a tanner’s shop and a bakery, practised writing with ink and parchment and learnt about illness remedies in the Apothecary.

In the afternoon, they spent time being archaeologists. They really enjoyed learning how the fire started on Pudding Lane and were excited to find out who had the plague!
