Year 2 Trip to the Tower of London

This week Year 2 have been on a trip to the Tower of London. Year 2 are currently learning all about the Great Fire of London and how it almost destroyed the entire city back in 1666! They visited the Tower of London to help them experience what it must have been like back in those days. It was a fantastic day out and they got to see and do so many amazing things, including…

Seeing the Crown Jewels with the Royal Guards patrolling outside.

Taking a tour of the White Tower where Samuel Pepys sat to write his diary as he watched the Great Fire of London.

Canon aiming practice in the White Tower.

A drama session with a costumed character, acting as the Farriner family who were bakers on Pudding Lane, where the fire started.

Sword practice with Miss Eyre – learning how to be Knights!

And enjoying a spot of reading on the tube journey home!
