Year 2 Great Fire of London Workshop

Year 2 had a wonderful time at their Great Fire of London workshop with Mr Cadle – The History Man.  The children were transported back to 1666 and learnt more about life in London, how and where the fire started and why it spread so quickly.  The children were able to dress in period costumes and handle many artefacts which they very much enjoyed.  The afternoon concluded with the children working in teams to put out a real fire on the quad using hand-pumps and, to much excitement, a controlled explosion of gunpowder.
