Event - Year 2's Great Fire of London

12 June 2019

On 12 June 2019, Year 2 recreated the Great Fire of London from 1666. It was a hot, dry and windy day, just like 353 years ago.


Our Fire Marshal checking the strength of the wind.
 
It only took a tiny spark.

The fire spread so quickly.
 
It took 30 seconds to burn our city down. We felt frightened and shocked at how quickly it had happened.

The Fire Marshal made sure the fire was safely put out.
 
We are very sad that all our hard work had been destroyed so quickly.
