Fire Fire Fire!

Fire, Fire, Fire!
We have really enjoyed this half term finding out about the Great Fire of London. We were amazing at remembering facts. At the beginning of the topic, these are some of the questions we wanted to investigate. Find the answers at the bottom of the page!

Where did the fire start?
Why did the fire spread?
How long did the fire last?
How do we know about the fire?

In our art lessons we explored colour. We found out more about primary colours and used these to make our own secondary colours. We looked at work by Piet Mondrian and even created some of our own. Using colours inspired by the Great Fire of London we made a woven pattern. 


  In English we have enjoyed reading Wow! Said the Owl which inspired us to write our own stories about an owl’s journey discovering colours around the world.

 This has linked with our Geography and Science topics as we have found out about different animals including birds and have created maps from an aerial (bird’s eye) view.

We hope you enjoyed watching our Christmas show as much as we enjoyed performing it.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Year 1 Team.
Here are the answers we found out:
Thomas Farriner’s bakery in Pudding Lane.
For many reasons including; the materials the houses were made of, houses were close together and it was very dry and windy at that time.
From Sunday the 2nd September 1666 – Thursday 6th September 1666
From eye witness sources such as Samuel Pepys.
