Year 2 Distance Learning 14.1.21

Happy Thursday lovely people! Keep up your fantastic work at home!



Today we are going to start working on a new book called ‘Vlad and the Great Fire of London’.

Here is the blurb from the back cover of the book.

Vlad and their friend, Boxton the rat, love eating and biting their way around London. But one night in Pudding Lane they are caught up in a fire that threatens to destroy them, along with most of the City of London.


Please click on the following link and watch the story being read. You can pause at any point and watch as many times as you like.

Vlad and The Great Fire of London – YouTube


Now answer these questions. You could tell your answers to someone at home or write them down. Whichever works best for you.

Did you enjoy the story?

Did you find any parts exciting or scary?

Why were soldiers blowing up people’s homes?

Why was the wind a problem while the fire was burning?

What was the man burying towards the end of the story?

Think of 3 words which could be used to describe how Vlad felt as he traveled through London as the Great Fire took hold.
