The Great Fire of London

So after looking at the clues we found, the children have realised that the artefacts were from the Great Fire of London! We learned about London in 1666 and tried to figure out why it was so devastating. This led us to talk about London nowadays and some children told us they had been there and had visited some of the attractions there. We learned where London was on the map, that it is the capital city of England and looked at some of the famous landmarks there. Can we use things in our classroom to make famous London landmarks?

Week 1 began with a mystery in the woods! We need an archeologist...

Luckily the world famous Lord Botherington-Smythe and equally famous archeologist Indiana Smith were in town!

The children explored the dig site using official archeological tools...

Many strange artifacts were discovered. The mystery deepened...

The clues that were found were a lot of toys, clothes and tools that were burnt! There were also burnt newspaper clippings from London dated 2nd September 1666. No one knew what these meant so it was decided that we would do some research on the internet. To everyone's amazement, we found there was an event that stunned the nation called 'The Great Fire of London'!
