Past and Present London

25 September 2016

What was London like in 1666? To find out more, Year 2 have been using sources and their history skills to compare the past and the present. 

First, the children worked collaboratively to look at sources to find out more about housing and what London looked like in 1666. We then looked at sources to find out more about the 'fire service' and fire safety in the past. The children compared this to the present day fire service. We then created role plays to show how we think the fire was dealt with in 1666 and how present day firemen would have stopped the fire.
