Literacy- Year 1 and 2

Today we are going to start reading the book 'The Great Fire of London- Anniversary edition'. This book is attached in the resourse section. I would like you to read pages 4-7 today. The GFOL was over 350 years ago in 1666. Watch this video (which we looked at the other day) to describe how London was in 1666. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPY-hr-8-M0 . I would like you to write a sentence using this format -> In 1666, London was busy. I would like you to choose an adjective to describe London in 1666. We are writing in the past tense, therefore we need to use 'was' instead of 'is'. Now have a think about London today. How has it changed over time?  I would like you to write sentences comparing London in the past and present using a colour to represent each. When writing our comparison sentence, we are going to use a conjunction. A conjunction joins a sentence together, for example 'but'. An example of a comparison sentence would be: In 1666 buildings were made of wood, but now they are made of concrete, glass and other materials. I would like you to write three of these sentences comparing how London has changed.
