Making Tudor townhouses

Peregrines got busy in class this week, constructing models of Tudor townhouses which we will use in our reconstruction of the Great Fire of London. In Topic lessons we have been learning all about how the houses were built and why they were prone to catching fire easily. We began by joining together cardboard boxes, then painting them white. Pupils then painted and stuck on black oak beams, small paned windows and doors. The finishing touch was to cover the roof in straw like a thatched roof of 1666. Thankyou to the parents and grandparents who came in to help on Tuesday and made it such a successful and enjoyable morning for the children.
