Welcome and News

Welcome back to the summer term!
 
I hope you had a brilliant Easter and a good break, filled with lots of your favourite things. 
 
On Monday we jumped straight into our new topic, as we found a letter from King Charles II at the front of the classroom. He needed our help working out what happened to his city of London, so we drew our magic mirrors and stepped back into Sunday 2nd September 1666 where a fire had began. The rest of the day was spent hearing eyewitness accounts and investigating the cause of the blaze, sorting and sequencing when and how the fire spread, then writing a newspaper report to tell everybody what we knew.
