Y2 Re-Enact the Great Fire of London

In the immersive re-enactment of the fateful event known as the Great Fire of London, children embarked on a journey through time, transporting themselves back to the year 1666. With meticulous attention to historical detail, the scene was set in the bustling streets of London, amidst the timber-framed buildings and narrow alleyways of Pudding Lane.

As the children assumed their positions, the atmosphere crackled with anticipation, mirroring the tension that gripped the city on that pivotal night. The momentous spark that ignited the inferno was brought to life. With dramatic flair, the bakery on Pudding Lane burst into flames. The vivid portrayal captured the chaos and confusion that ensued as the fire quickly spread, engulfing one building after another.

Through the re-enactment, children gained a deeper understanding of the events that shaped London’s history. They witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of the blaze. This re-enactment allowed pupils to connect with the past in a meaningful and profound way.
