Great Fire of London Workshop

Today class 3 had a morning of fun learning more about the Great fire of London. We had a workshop outside with a company called Alfresco Learning. The first task was to create a structure out of sticks And this was called wattle. We then got our hands muddy and dirty by using daub (soil, straw and water) to make out structures wind and water proof. In 1666 they used wattle and daub to build houses.

Next we had an investigation to do. We had to make a house out of two materials to keep Thomas Farriner warm and dry. The materials we chose were clay, stones and tin foil. We then tested out to see whether or not he was dry.

We had a fantastic morning and worked so well in our teams.
