Spring Term 2019
We have been learning about what caused the Great Fire of London, why it spread so fast and how it was eventually put out. Some of the children built model houses during their Child Initiated Learning. Once we had enough houses to create a model city we laid them out on our playground and set fire to them. We watched how the light wind helped the fire to spread quickly through the wood and straw that we had put into each model. After the fire was put out we used our senses to describe what was left. We all agreed that ‘smouldering’ was a good way to describe the remains of our model city.
