Great Fire of London / Fire Service Visit - May 2019

Year 1 have been learning about the Great Fire of London and enjoyed having a visit from a theatre company who helped tell the story. All of the children were able to dress up and act out the scenes from the event. This gave the children an insight into what it might have been like to have lived in London in 1666. To end our Great Fire of London work, we had our own fire on the field. The children made their own cardboard houses and took them to the field where they were then burnt - it was amazing to see how quickly they burnt!


We also had a visit from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service who taught us some important rules/rhymes to help us stay safe in an emergency. Can your child remember them?
