The Great Fire of London
We have been learning about the Great Fire of London in 1666. The children made their own houses after researching what houses would have been like during the time of the fire. We used lots of sources of evidence to try to work out what life would have been like at the time of the fire and what it would have been like to witness the fire. After learning about fire safety, we set out the houses close together in our windy playground. We were able to witness first hand how the fire spread from house to house, blown by the wind. We also discovered that there was a lot of smoke created by the fire, and this may have been the first thing people nearby witnessed before they saw any flames.
