St Andrew's C of E (VA) Primary


Back in Time to 1666!

Before half term, year 2 had a very exciting trip back to 1666 to end our Great Fire of London learning. We came in dressed as people from the Stuart era and even got to try some jobs that people did. We started by making dried flower bags which were believed to keep people healthy by keeping away the bad air. We liked the smell of the rose petals and lavender but found the spices and cloves a bit strong! Next, we wrote with real quills dipped in ink and the grown-ups couldn't believe how neat our hand-writing was! After that, we made clay candle holders and some of us got to use a wax stamp to seal a letter. The whole class also did some drama, read some Great Fire of London stories and made some art. What a busy day!
