Today we were very lucky as we had a real life author come to visit us. Kate Cunningham has written a story based on the Great Fire of London. Her book is called 'Vlad and the Great Fire of London'.
We really enjoyed listening to her read her book and we learnt some interesting facts about the Great Fire.
Then we pretended we were helping to put the fire out. Where did the water come from? How did they get the water to the fire to put it out?
We got into groups and discussed what we might have seen or heard if we were there at the time of the fire.
Then Kate showed us some real coins that she has. The coins were very delicate so we had to be very careful when we handled them.
At the end of the day, Kate talked to us about her job as an author and how she writes her books. Would you like to be an author when you grow up?
