We had an interesting day on Wednesday when Peter Hammond came to visit us. He is an archaeologist and has been to tell us all about The Great Fire of London and show us some interesting artefacts that he has dug up from London and The River Thames. We learned that the artefacts could give us clues to what life was like in 1666.

We had chance to touch and draw the artefacts. It was great!

We then got the chance to meet Samuel Pepys, who came to see us from the past!

He told us about the Great Fire and its effects on London. We have learned lots about this topic and are looking forward to reporting on it.
