Fire pictures

Today we used Paint on the computer to create fire pictures. We experimented and used different brushes to create different effects.
Why not have a go at making your own at home?
Here are a few examples of our work.



Aston Hall

Today Year 2 visited Aston Hall to find out more about The Great Fire Of London. We were able to dress up in costumes and we saw lots of artefacts including a leather bucket and a fire hook. The fire hook was huge and very heavy. We explored the kitchen and learnt how to make a fire using a tinder box, flint and steel.
Also, we were able to complete some creative activities. We made a treasure box and pretended to be Samuel Pepys burying our important things. Following that we tried to write using a quill pen and ink. It was much harder than using our pencils!
We all had a fantastic day and learnt lots of new facts!
