The Great Fire of London has been our main history topic in Year 2. We have introduced this to the children with the aim of helping them to understand why it is such a significant period in the history of London.
Our work started off by learning how the fire first started. We have become familiar with the Pudding Lane story, as well as then seeing at how the fire was able to spread with such great speed. We were also interested in knowing how the Great Fire of London was finally extinguished. A couple of Year 2 children explain more about this in the podcast below.
