The Great Fire of London - from a Literacy Perspective

Year 2 have been very enthusiastic with the start to our Literacy topic this term.  They learnt about The Great Fire of London in Year 1 and were able to bring all sorts of knowledge and understanding to our introductory lessons.  They have already been able to predict the events happened a long time ago because of the clothes the characters are wearing on the front cover.  They also know so much about Samuel Pepys who is also on the front cover.
So far, we have explored new and unfamiliar vocabulary and we've practised reading with fluency and expression.
