Year 2 have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. The 1666 fire began in a bakery on Pudding Lane and due to the houses being very close together in narrow streets, the fire spread quickly.
This week, the children in Year 2 learned a little bit more about the Tudor era houses in London at the time of the fire. The children knew that the houses were made of wood, but this week, they found out that the walls were filled in with ‘wattle and daub’ which means wooden strips and either clay or dung!
Year 2 built their own models of Tudor houses using cereal boxes and paper. The children painted their boxes white and added black strips of paper as Tudor homes were made out of dark wood and the walls were painted white. The children also gave their houses latticed windows and either a thatch or tile roof.
