Plague in Blue Class!
Blue Class had spots in their class last week in more ways than one! A visiting local historian taught them all about the Great Plague – where it came from, how it spread and what the symptoms looked like. They also had an opportunity to handle artefacts from the era – around 1665/1666 – which was also the time of the Great Fire of London. Learning history through handling objects and asking questions from an expert is both exciting and an important historical skills.
