The Great Fire of London Re-Enactment

Year 8 students took part in an interactive History lesson to learn about how The Great Fire of London happened!

Over two days, students created their own versions of the buildings that would have been around in 1666. These buildings were then taken outside into the sandpit, and it was lit and managed by our Site Team to ensure that there were no risks to students or staff.
