This workshop uses a visit to our mill and breadmaking as a 'step into' interactive experience for exploring the history of the Great Fire of London. Directly linked to the history curriculum, a visit can be a great way to introduce your topic or reinforce and enhance classroom learning.
During the day, children will visit the mill and see our Miller set the mill to work to grind the grain into flour. There'll be the opportunity to explore and create simple cog systems, the essential component to the mill. Once the grain is milled, the children can then visit 'Mistress Farriner' in the bakery, to create a bread roll to take home. The rest of the visit involves a carousel of learning activities, so that the children gain direct experience of how we know about the Great Fire of London. There's a chance for each child to take part in a mini archaeological dig, an object handling task which takes the form of a fun and exciting puzzle - 'What would you save?' with our famous Bucket Race completing the day!
