The Great Fire of London

Year 2 ended their topic on the Great Fire of London with a spectacular burning of their Tudor houses.  These took hours to make out of cardboard and painted beautifully to immitate Tudor homes.  The whole school turned out to witness the speed in which the fire took hold.  This demonstration was done by Crewe Fire brigade and we all watched from a safe distance.

The Chief Fire Officer explained before he started the importance of safety and to look at how quickly fire can spread.  He lit the first house and within minutes the whole collection had burnt to the ground!

Year 2 Parents were also invited to come along.  They were treated to a nice cup of tea and biscuits.

Thank you to Crewe Fire Brigade for giving up their time.
