Describing Turns

English - How did people respond to the Great fire of London?

Year 2's task today is to think about what people did in the Fire of London. People responded in different ways like running, fire fighting and giving orders so what did you put on your mind map?
Once you have watched the video, it is your turn, to think about what you'd do in the Great Fire of London. Would you be the first on the boat or would you be pulling down the houses to help the effort. Feel free to comment on this video or send your writing to us.
