Year 2 have been so creative today! We have come to the end of our learning enquiry in history ‘Why did the Great Fire of London destroy so much of the city?’, we have designed our own Great Fire of London scenes to sequence and retell the events of the Great Fire using animation. Have a look at our amazing creations and some pictures of us in action!
We walked over to Cheltenham Ladies College this morning to take part in a football skills session. It was so much fun!
