We have really enjoyed learning this song about the Great Fire of London

Great Fire of London: September 1666 - Children's song with words by Al Start

Awesome afternoon in the Mystical Garden today. We recreated the Great Fire of London by setting fire to our Tudor houses and watching how the fire spread from building to building..

We made Tudor houses today as part of our Great Fire of London topic. We had to learn how to turn the boxes inside out to ensure the paint would stick, then we had to measure and make a roof and then paint the houses with the traditional black and white Tudor design. We were really pleased with our finished houses.
We were really lucky today as we had a visiting artist in as part of Aviation Heritage in Lincolnshire. She is making a large poppy display to go around the church door and we each got to make a poppy out of waterproof material. We had to concertina the red material and fix it with a paperclip and then cut a fringe into the black material. Everybody worked really hard and the children really enjoyed. The poppies will be displayed around the door of St Michael's Church for Remembrance Sunday and the days around this if you would like to go and see them.

Fantastic art lesson today! The children visited St Michael's church to practise their sketching skills using a variety of pencils. I was so impressed with their concentration and attention to detail.
