I Didn't Know That: The London Tube. Sunday 2 September 1666 (Pepys' Diary) (Lord’s day). Some of our mayds sitting up late last night to get things ready against our feast to-day, Jane called us up about three in the morning, to tell us of a great fire they saw in the City. So I rose and slipped on my nightgowne, and went to her window, and thought it to be on the backside of Marke-lane at the farthest; but, being unused to such fires as followed, I thought it far enough off; and so went to bed again and to sleep.

About seven rose again to dress myself, and there looked out at the window, and saw the fire not so much as it was and further off. So to my closett to set things to rights after yesterday’s cleaning. 9 The Constable Tower. 8 The Broad Arrow Tower. 7 The East Wall Walk. 6 South Wall Walk and Salt Tower. 4 Inner Curtain Wall Walk. 5 The Lanthorn Tower. 3 The Wake Field Tower. 2 Edward I's Bedchamber. 1 St Thomas's Tower.

Flippa London ~ Kilskrift. På tisdag åker jag iväg till BETT i London på uppdrag av Barnverket. Det ska naturligtvis bli fantastiskt roligt och jag hoppas att jag kan få många nya inputs för digitalt lärande. Jag hoppas förstås kunna blogga från London så häng gärna på och läs mina blogginlägg nästa vecka.

När det började närma sig BETT-vecka och avresa började jag fundera på hur jag skulle kunna låta det här bli till nytta även för mina elever. Jag har beslutat mig för att göra en flipp för att mina elever ska lära sig lite om London. De har därför fått i "läxa"att ge mig uppdrag att utföra i London. För att kunna ge mig uppdragen måste de först läsa på en del i ämnet. Uppdragen till mig kommer eleverna att skriva in i en survey som ligger sist i flippen, men som jag väljer att inte publicera här.

På tisdag kväll åker fröken K till London. Det ska bli väldigt spännande att se vad det blir av det här.
