Year 2: Great Fire of London Day
October 19, 2022
To celebrate the end of this project we shall have our achieve day where we invite the children to take part in a Great Fire of London Experience Day where children can dress up in attire from 1666 as well as firefighters, past and present!
This experience day will be on Wednesday 19th October 2022.
On this day, the children will have a visit from Freshwater Theatre Company, who will hold workshops during the day to transport our children back to 1666! Mary Porter, a resident of Pudding Lane in 1666 will work with one class at a time carrying out an interactive workshop. She will use drama activities such as roleplay and tableaux to explore the topic! This workshop gives the children a chance to explore different aspects of the fire, such as what life was like in Pudding Lane beforehand and how the fire happened, and deal with the aftermath. They also get to become the fire, using ribbons and mime in a lovely movement activity!
In addition to this, we shall be experiencing some fun activities on the day, including a virtual interview with our local firefighters in Milton Keynes and a short virtual tour of the fire station and fire engines at West Ashland fire station.
In support of this event, we are asking for a voluntary contribution of £7.50, in line with the charging and remission fund, which will cover the visit from the Freshwater Theatre Company. We request that all payments be made by cash directly to the school office.
Any questions or concerns, as always please do get in touch.
We hope to give the children a fun filled achieve day!
