We watched our houses go up in fire to re - enact 'The Great Fire of London'. The fire spread quickly because the houses were so close together and made out of wood.
We invited the Fire Brigade to come into school to help set our houses on fire. In the playground the children set the scene by arranging the house models to resemble a London street. The firefighters started the blaze at our scale model of Pudding Lane.
This has been an excellent way of finishing our topic on the Great Fire of London and really helped bring our topic to life.
Thank you to the Worcester fire brigade for giving up their time.
