Great Fire of London comes to Cuckoo

Year 1 'History Off The Page' workshop 

Our Year 1s took part in one of the most impressive workshops we have ever seen at the school.
‘History Off The Page’, a group of highly skilled, qualified teachers, that bring to life a selective part of history, put on a daylong event of exceptional quality.
The children started their morning becoming apprentices on the streets of London.
They learned skills that were common in that era such as barber surgeon, apothecary, leather worker, and chandler.
Other children learned about working in a schoolhouse, or how to be a perfumer, baker, metal worker, seamstress, and weaver.
They dressed up in costumes and found out a huge amount about living in medieval times.
The day with one of the most famous events in history – the great fire itself.
