It only takes a spark, or two!
It was 1666 and the fire burnt on...
Year 2 journeyed back in time this week as they recreated The Great Fire of London. The girls demonstrated their knowledge through an informative class assembly before teaching staff demonstrated to pupils how the fire spread from house to house by setting the girls’ model houses ablaze. Unfortunately, this London wasn’t quite as keen to burn as the real thing and it took several attempts to get it going! After the fire was stocked and an attempt by Mrs Tewari, a chain of girls and a very tiny bucket of water to douse it, the miniature London was promptly and safely extinguished by our maintenance team.
Lindsay King, Acting Head of Junior Girls, congratulated Year 2 on their class performance: “We were treated to a wonderful and educational journey back in time to London 1666 when the girls demonstrated their knowledge and their risk-taking skills in performing their class assembly to us all. Tangible learning experiences such as these are a great way to engage our pupils, really bringing the curriculum to life.”
