Building the (1666) Streets of London…

The finishing touches have been put on our Tudor style houses now and we were excited to see them being used to create a wonderful Great Fire of London display in the corridor. We started by covering boxes with sugar paper. Next we drew lines for the wooden frames and painted them on. Once they were dry we carefully added details such as the leaded windows and door handles using black felt tip pen. We think they look great! 

         

We have also been learning more about the monument to the fire which stands near Pudding Lane in London. James brought in his certificate to prove that he climbed the 311 steps to reach the top – we all thought he must have been really tired by the time he had climbed 311 steps down again! Libby showed us a photograph of herself and her brother standing at the bottom of the monument. If you’re going to London over half term, perhaps you will be abke to visit the Monument and maybe ebpven clib all those steps? Click here to find out more.
