Fire, fire!​

Year 2 travel back in time to discover the remarkable events of the Great Fire of London in history and through considering such losses that occurred at that time start to understand how to find happiness. They uncover the properties of everyday materials in science and link it to its significance in life in 1666. Through mapping, in geography, some of the main landmarks in London of the past and comparing them to now they understand how disasters can strike. Year 2 also use Scratch in computing to trace our steps across London. Through expressive painting in art the children create their own views of the great fire. The children explore happiness through music, whilst learning to be in a rock band and learn the dimensions of music, like pulse, rhythm and pitch through a group song. ​
