Great Fire Of London

Recently, Year 2 visited the Emergency Services Museum in Sheffield to develop their understanding of The Great Fire of London.
The children took part in a workshop to find out how the people of London tried to extinguish the fire without the support of a fire service. They discovered that they scooped up water from the River Thames using leather buckets and passed this from person to person.
After, Kye said, “Even though it was a good way of putting the fire out, the houses were close together and the winds were strong so the fire kept on burning.”  Isabelle added, “It took five days for the Great Fire to stop because the wind finally started to die down.”
