On Wednesday 1 March the Year 2 boys took part in a workshop about the Great Fire of London at Headstone Manor. The boys were encouraged to become history detectives and investigate how and why fires started easily in buildings made from wood, using Headstone Manor as the example. They gathered evidence about why the Great Fire burnt for so long and what people did to try to stop it.
There was a chance for the boys to use role play to find out how a combination of decisions and circumstances led to the destruction of London in 1666. Additionally, they got to make their own version of a fire plaque from clay.
