Today some of the Cosham Fire Department came to visit us for our
Great Fire of London topic.
They were really impressed with what we have learnt already:
“The fire burned for 4 days.” (Logan Kai)
“Many people were made homeless.” (Logan A)
“It started in a bakery in pudding Lane.” (Frankie)
“The fire spread because the houses were so close together and made out of wood.” (Eleanor)
The firefighters talked through the differences in how fires were dealt with in 1666 to today. We were even allowed to sit inside their fire engine.
Logan A – How many prank calls do you get? Logan asked a really interesting question that allowed us to discuss the importance of only making real calls to the fire fighters.
We also talked about fire safety and what we can do to help at home and in school.
