As part of their Humanities lessons, our Year 1 pupils have been learning about the Great Fire of London.

The Great Fire of London started on Sunday 2 September 1666, in the baker’s shop on Pudding Lane. The buildings in this era were made of timber, roofed with thatch, and tightly packed together, which resulted in the fire spreading quickly and easily.

To conclude their studies, the children were each tasked with creating a building inspired by those found in London in 1666, out of cardboard.

On the final day of first half of term, to visualise their learning, the children with great excitement, delivered their buildings to our Outdoor Learning Area and recreated Pudding Lane.

Once the pupils were positioned safely away from the cardboard structures, we set fire to the bakery, and they watched the fire swiftly spread.
