The Great Fire of London

blogged by me domestic goddess On 5/14/2009 03:06:00 PM
In September 1666, much of London vanished in the Great Fire, now known as The Great Fire of London. Lilly has been learning about this event at school and is completely wrapped up in the whole thing! Getting very annoyed that the French weavers were jailed, when it was really the bakers fault for not checking his oven before bed! Bless her, if there is anything you want to know about the fire in 1666, Lilly can tell you!

She will usually start a conversation with
" do you know about The Great Fire of London?"
to which you MUST reply
" well, in 166 there was a baker in Pudding Lane, who was baking bread and went to bed. He didn't check the ovens and there was a big fire"

and then she proceeds to tell you how the fire spread and how all the people escape! I really am not to sure who the French Weavers are, or if she has misheard her teacher, but she is adamant the French Weavers were sent to jail!
For anyone who would like to know more, LOL! here is a great website

A few weeks ago, year 1/2 spent the day dressed up as an Edwardian with guest speakers throughout the day to learn more.
And here is my little darling!

I have had a lovely afternoon, meeting up with Dawn, and then having a little browse around the shops and picked up some bargain stitchinhg templates by Papermania.
Hope you have all had a lovely day, I am hoping to get some scrapping done before watching American Idol. I am supporting Adam all the way!!!
