This term, our Year 2 big question is ‘Did Guy Fawkes start the Great Fire of London?’ We will spend the term exploring how the great fire started and how London was rebuilt. It is our important mission to find out who started the fire and who Guy Fawkes really is!
To enhance our learning and outcomes for this topic, we are excited to announce that Guy Fawkes himself will be time travelling from the 1600s to the present day to our school to tell us all about his plans. Guy Fawkes will be sure to give us plenty of information to help us answer our big question.
Our special visitor will spend the whole day with us on Wednesday 20th October. He will begin by telling us his plans for the Houses of Parliament and then the children will be a part of practical activities to be drawn deeper into the story. The day will not just have a History focus, it will incorporate English as we invent our own secret codes, Art as we create posters to illustrate the event and Geography as we look at maps of London.
In order for this exciting event to take place, we are asking for a voluntary contribution of £12.50 per child. Please use the Parent Pay system to make your contributions by Friday 15th October. If we do not receive enough funds through voluntary contributions, we may have to make the decision cancel.
