London’s Burning

Year 1 finished their last topic, The Great Fire of London, with a great fire on a local beach. It was a controlled burning and the children watched from a safe distance as they witnessed how quickly the fire spread from house to house. Luckily the houses were made using cardboard boxes and the children painted wooden beams on them to make them look authentic. What a brilliant end to a fun topic!
