Year 2

Autumn - The Great Fire of London

This term, Year 2 students stepped into the role of historians to discover when, where and why ‘The Great Fire of London’ broke out. Pupils were able to extract information from a variety of sources and raise valid questions relevant to the enquiry. By the end of the topic the children were able to identify the reasons why so many houses burnt down. They enjoyed re-creating the scene of the ‘Great Fire’ by demonstrating what equipment was used to put out the fire. They also consolidated their learning by attempting to re-design London to make sure that a fire of that size would never take hold of London again.

Summer - Lives of Significant Individuals (Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole

As Historians, we have been finding out who Florence Nightingale is and how she was able to help soldiers. We looked at her important achievements and different people’s opinions of her. We also looked at Mary Seacole, and main events within her life as well as her greatest achievements. Finally, we finished with a debate which one of them should have their statue outside the St Thomas hospital in London.
