BINF – London’s burning, London’s burning!

On Tuesday Mr Gordon, a fireman, came to our school to help us recreate the catastrophic event that changed London forever! We created Tudor houses using boxes and positioned them to replicate Pudding Lane, where the Great Fire of London was believed to have started. Our friendly firefigher set fire to them whilst we watched from a safe distance and used our senses to explore what we could smell, see and hear. We were amazed at how quickly the fire tore through the buildings, giving us a sense of the fear that Londoners in 1666 would have felt.
