On Monday, we started our new English topic. We read a diary that belonged to somebody who was writing on Sunday 2nd September 1666. We know that this is the day that The Great Fire of London started. We used this diary to help us perform some drama. We acted in role as children during the Great Fire. We pretended to be asleep and listened to noises of fire. We coughed because we decided there would be lots of smoke. We then discussed how we would have felt.
“I felt worried because the fire might come to my street” Lourdes.
“I felt upset because I didn’t want to leave my warm, safe bed.” Logan
“I felt curious, I wanted to know how the fire started”. Emma
“I felt nervous because the fire could burn down my house”. Beatriz
We used this drama to begin to write diaries of our own using our experiences.
Look out for our next blog where we will share our finished Great Fire of London diaries.
