Recreating The Great Fire of London

Yesterday we recreated our own version of The Great Fire of London on the school playground. We used carboard boxes to represent the houses and matches as the starting point for our fire.

Using all our knowledge we have learnt this term, we were able to explain why our fire spread so quickly and ended up with all the 'houses' being in a pile of ash. The wind made it a little tricky to get our fire going but really spread the flames quickly once it going.

Here are some pictures of before, during and after our fire:
