Since starting our topic on London we have learnt about 'The Plague', how it started, how it spread and what the doctors tried to do. We have also learnt about 'The Great Fire of London' which started 2nd September 1666 in a Bakery in Pudding Lane. We have drawn our own Great Fire using pastels and today we have made our own houses, out of boxes, and recreated what the Great Fire of London would of been like by setting them on FIRE!!!! We made them out of cardboard to show how quickly the fire spread because the houses in 1666 had wooden beams which caught fire ever so quickly. Here are some photos of the day.

Where it all started in the Bakery
It went up very quickly
This was all that was left of our houses.
We have had fun, fiery day. We really, really, really enjoyed it!!
