History - Autumn Term 2019 Update

From The Great Fire of London, to The Vikings, to World War 2, our children have been very busy delving into the past!

Have a look at some of the amazing work we have done!

Year 1 and 2 have been learning about The Great Fire of London of 1666.

The topic began with children comparing London in the 21st century and in 1666. 

They have made comparisons about modern firefighters those from the 17th century. The children have learned to use chronology to place events on a time line. 


Children have applied basic English skills to write diary entries and stories about this famous event.

Year 3 and 4 have been learning all about The Vikings. 

This was their enrichment day where they met Adam The Viking. He helped them to sort evidence, make inferences and deductions using secondary sources. 

The children then applied these skills to some of their other work.

Here is just a sample of the work the children have done during the topic. 

They have learned about Viking death, Norse mythology, how Vikings recorded and communicated and investigated how powerful the gods and goddesses were.

Years 5 and 6 have been learning about World War 2.

They have analysed propaganda posters to create their own Dig for Victory style advert. They have used chronology to make timelines of events of Jewish persecution before and during the war. They have used English skills to write letters of persuasion and biographies of Winston Churchill.

Loads of fantastic work here!
