Year 1/2 Gallery. Look what we have been up to!

Welcome to our gallery. We hope you enjoy looking at the lovely things the children have been doing and gather some ideas for projects you might like to do at home. In year 1/2 we encourage children to do practical projects at home that follow their own interests. Projects might be linked to the topics we are covering in school or they could be about anything the children are interested in. We love seeing all of their creative ideas and hobbies!

The Great Fire of London


We have been learning about the Great Fire of London in 1666. The children made their own houses after researching what houses would have been like during the time of the fire. We used lots of sources of evidence to try to work out what life would have been like at the time of the fire and what it would have been like to witness the fire. After learning about fire safety, we set out the houses close together in our windy playground. We were able to witness first hand how the fire spread from house to house, blown by the wind. We also discovered that there was a lot of smoke created by the fire, and this may have been the first thing people nearby witnessed before they saw any flames.
