Class 10 learned about The Great Fire of London this term. It started in September 1666 in a Baker’s on Pudding Lane and burned for 4 days and 4 nights. People evacuated in boats along the River Thames because the fire just kept spreading.
Leather buckets were used by the fire fighters to pour water on the fire, and finally fire hooks were used to pull buildings down.
We made a model of London. Do you like it?
Nowadays, houses are made of bricks, not wood. This makes them safer. Our houses are built further apart and we use hoses to put out fires. They’re far more powerful!
