This half-term, we have been learning about the Great Plague. I loved how Eli made a Plague doctor mask out of papier-mâché for his homework and Ellie J made a rat! Because we loved it, we all made a rat for our display in the corridor.
The best thing this half-term, was creating a PowerPoint presentation based on the Plague using the transitions and animations. I made my Plague doctor dance! We also pretended to be Samuel Pepys and wrote a diary from 400 years ago!
Did you know that they put chicken’s bottoms on their spots, put toads around their necks and climbed into sewers thinking that it would cure the Plague? We had fun!
