Great Fire of London

Lesson: History

Class: Y1/2: Mr Murphy's Class Year: 2018 - 2019

The Fire Brigade came to visit to talk to us about the Great Fire of London and fire safety. While they were here they helped us to carry out an exciting experiment! We have been busy making houses for our DT project in the style of the 17th Century and the Fire service kindly helped us to set them on fire and watch our recreation of Pudding Lane burn down. This allowed the children to immerse themselves in their learning and have a deeper understanding of how quickly the fire spread and why. As you can see they also thoroughly enjoyed themselves!
