Year 2 Visit to The Monument

In Year 2, we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. In 1666, Thomas Farriner, the baker to the king, forgot to close his oven, and this fire spread to set the whole of London alight! 
To explore the Great Fire of London further, we visited the Monument in Central London. We learned that the Monument was built to help us remember the devastating fire and show us where it all began. We walked down Pudding Lane, where the fire started. We also climbed a massive 311 steps to get to the top of the Monument! From the top, we saw some incredible views of London.
We ate our lunch in a lovely park nearby, then caught the train back to school. It was a fantastic day!
