Samuel Pepys Visits The Study!

Samuel Pepys was an English naval administrator and Member of Parliament who is most famous for the diary that he kept for a decade while still a relatively young man. The detailed private diary that he kept from 1660 until 1669 was first published in the 19th century. It provides a combination of personal revelation and eyewitness accounts of great events, such as the Great Plague of London, the Second Dutch War, and the Great Fire of London.

The girls in Year  2 were inspired by his  life and writings and themselves  wrote a diary, including entries about what happened during the Great Fire of London, which they learnt about in their lessons. They learnt how to use a quill with ink.  They also found a very old hat and worked out that it belonged to “Samuel Pepys” who they then discovered was by chance visiting The Study!  “Mr Pepys” told the girls lots of interesting facts about what he saw in September 1666!
