KS1 thoroughly enjoyed a workshop from Freshwater theatre company on the Great fire of London to launch their new topic. Through drama, they learnt about everyday life in London during Stuart times; how the fire started and spread and how it was eventually brought under control. The children took on the roles of street sellers in London and important figures such as the mayor of London, Samuel Pepys and even King Charles. It was a really fun and successful day and laid a great foundation for the rest of this term’s work.
