Year 1 - Great Fire of London

Hidden Histories in Britain


During the History Learning Journey, children will explore and uncover the real, rich history our children deserve to learn. They will consider the forgotten stories  of men, women and children in history. They will explore what Stuart London was like for all members of society at those times as well as explore the events that led to The Great Fire of London. They will study what it was like to be a child in these times. The children will debate whether the fire was preventable and make links between the past and present including how  the rebuilding of London took place.


For more information, please see the Learning Journey Letter and Knowledge Organiser below.


Celebrating our Learning!


During this History Learning Journey, children have investigated and interpreted the past.  Children have learnt about key Black British men and women and their contributions to Britain.  They have explored the features of the past, including ideas, beliefs, attitudes and experiences of men, women and children during the period of time they lived.  Children have been able to understand how and why the significant person they studied has impacted their lives today.

Every class has been taking part in our 'Poetry Slam' competition, with learning inspired by a significant black poet.  The children chose and voted for a winning poem, learnt it as a class and performed it for you to watch at home!
