On Wednesday 29th January, Chestnut Class told the story of the Great Fire of London through a classic TV show, Mr Benn. The boys performed an amazing class assembly where Mr Benn travelled back in time to learn all about what happened during this time in history. Through drama, song and dance, they retold the disastrous events that unfolded late that night on Sunday 2nd September 1666, which changed London forever.
Samuel Pepys shared extracts from his famous diary, Thomas Farriner admitted his mistake which took place at his Bakery on Pudding Lane and King Charles I1 eventually took charge. We even saw the fire taking place through a beautiful ribbon dance over some artworks of the houses, all created by the boys themselves.
The boys were all stars on stage. They delivered their lines confidently and sang, as well as danced, with great enthusiasm. Their costumes too were wonderful and huge thanks to all the parents of Chestnut Class for providing such amazing outfits and supporting the boys in learning their lines.
Well done to all of Chestnut Class - you should be very proud.
