Famous events, people and places

Year 1 have become Hillstone’s official history detectives! This half term, the children will be travelling back in time to 1666 to explore the events of The Great Fire of London.

They will be developing their history skills and knowledge by delving into the diary of Samuel Pepys, studying artefacts and images and exploring how London has changed over time. 

Ask your child about what Ms Sparrow discovered during her trip to London over Christmas - I’m sure you will be very impressed with their enthusiasm, as well as their findings so far!
