Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School


Year 1- Florence Nightingale 


Year 1 have been learning about Florence Nightingale. They have looked at different historical artefacts and thought about what they can teach us about the past. Children really enjoyed thinking about what each object could have been used for and discussing ideas with friends.

Year 2 - The Great Fire of London


Year 2 have been using their investigative minds to lead their learning about the Great Fire of London this Spring term. They have used a variety of sources such as old newspapers, paintings, artefacts and even Samuel Pepys' diary to discover how and where the fire started, how it spread and how people survived. Check out some of our enquiry based learning below:
