GREAT FIRE OF LONDON
As a culmination of our project on the Great Fire of London, the children had homework to design and make a house for our recreation of the Great Fire of London. On the Friday before half term we built a street with our houses and Mr Vivian helped us to burn them. As you can see from the photos, it was a fantastic experience and the children of Mini Grey Class really did have a Great Fire of Hollickwood !
YEAR 2 TRIP TO THE MONUMENT
Mini Grey had a fantastic trip to the Monument in the City last Friday. It was a busy but fun day ! We walked from The Monument all the way along the River Thames to St Paul's Cathedral and back again, stopping for lunch half way. Then, when we arrived back at the Monument, we were met by a man dressed as Robert Hook who designed the Monument after the Great Fire of London. The highlight of the trip was climbing the 311 steps to the top of the Monument. Once at the top we were able to enjoy the magnificent views over London. Luckily, this was helped by a bright, sunny day !
