Welcome to the website for Prae Wood Primary School

Year 2 - Chestnut Class

Mrs Chapman and Mrs Mason


Our class teacher is Mrs Chapman and our teaching assistant is Mrs Mason.

Our PPA teacher is Ms Handley.

We had an amazing start to our new topic The Great Fire of London.

With the help of Off the Page Ltd we were transported back in time to 1666 and explored what life in London was like before the fire started and the different roles that people may have had at the time such as a seamstress, baker, chandler and even a rat catcher!

When the fire began we were able to act out trying to put out the fire by beating it with our fire sticks, pouring on water and pretending to tear the buildings down. Unfortunately these methods did not work and we had to hide under the tables when the explosives were lit to create a fire break which succeeded in bringing the fire to an end.

We are looking forward to finding out more about our new topic and sharing what we have learned with our grown ups in our class assembly on Friday 15th November at 9am.

A huge thank you to the parents who helped to supervise the activities.
