Year 1 & 2 had a workshop this term based on The Great Fire of London. The hall was set out as Pudding Lane, where the fire had started. There were different activities the children could take part in which included:

Barber Surgeons, Apothecaries, Leather Workers, Chandlers, and Weavers.


While the children were taking part in their activities the smoke machine would go off and different updates were given about where the fire had spread to. All the children were completely engaged and took on their responsibilities very seriously. They even had to be responsible for putting out the fire and pass a bucket to each other quickly before the fire got worse. This was an experience the children will never forget and it helped enhance what they already knew about the fire and also taught them many more facts that they didn't know.
