The Great Fire of London house building

As part of our History project on The Great Fire of London, Year 2 had a fantastic afternoon constructing replicas of early 17th century houses. We learned about the houses being timber framed and the use of wattle and daub as a building material. Each group opted for thatched roofs although the majority of the straw ended up scattered around the classrooms!

Thank you so much to all the parents that joined us for our fun activity.
