Something happened in 1666...

After creating our bakery posters for Mrs Darling, we attempted to send them back in the time machine to London in 1665. When we arrived at school in the morning, the posters were still there but they were burnt! When we had a closer look we found a page from someone’s diary (his name was Samuel Pepys) which had been mixed up in our posters. We realised that the posters had been sent to Pudding Lane, London in 1666 not 1665! 

We want to find out more about what happened in 1666 and who Samuel Pepys was...


History

In Y2 we have been learning about the plague in London in 1665, and comparing it to Covid-19. Did you know that people with the plague also had to isolate? They would put a Red Cross on their door. The medicines used were very different, children can you remember some of the strange things people used to try to cure themselves of the plague?

We have also been comparing houses from 1665 to 2021, we created our own wattle and daub structure in our outdoor area and have made cardboard replicas of houses from 1665.

Using our time machine, a special visitor, Mrs Darling, came to tell us all about London in 1665. She was surprised to see all of the technology that we have in 2021 and also how many children were at school! 

The next day, a parcel appeared from Mrs Darling, it was a gift from her local bakery on Pudding Lane in London. We tasted delicious biscuits, chewy flapjack and soft bread. Mrs Darling was worried about the bakery, they weren’t getting much business due to the plague. We decided to help her and make posters to advertise the bakery, our plan to send them back in time using our time machine!

It seems like a long time ago now but the nativity was brilliant plus our walk around the village to see the Christmas Tree. Enjoy.

Andy Goldsworthy Land Art Afternoon

posted 6 Jul 2021, 09:05 by Julia Hope-Gill

Yesterday we had lots of fun researching the art work of Andy Goldsworthy, who is inspired by nature to create some amazing pieces of art. We then collected the materials from the school grounds that inspired us and completed our colourful and inspiring pieces ourselves. We hope that you like them. Please look out for our very own Y2 Gallery outside our classroom (weather permitting!) Y2 Team
