Fire and Rescue Service Visit

Class One constructed their own houses to recreate how Pudding Lane looked in 1666.  Linking with our Science, we made 'wattle and daub' to understand how building materials have changed over time. 


On Friday 29th September 2017, we were fortunate enough to be visited by Kev, Julian and Scoot from Hitchin Fire and Rescue Service.  We asked them questions about modern day fire-fighting and they also gave us a deeper insight into how fire-fighting has changed over time since the Great Fire of London.


After our discussion time, we went outside to watch our 'Pudding Lane' being destroyed by fire, just as parts of London were in 1666.  Luckily, the Fire Service was on hand to control the fire.  Kev talked to us about fire safety and then we were allowed to look at the fire engine.  We were very excited to hear the sirens as they drove away.
