London’s Burning!

2S went to Calthorpe Haven this afternoon to see how quickly some of our models of London would burn down in… It took just less than 4 minutes!

What did you see, hear, smell and feel….? How did we have to stay safe..?

Why did the real houses in London burn down so quickly..?

We sang as we watched…

Can you sing ‘London’s Burning’

Use these lyrics (song words) to help you:

‘London’s Burning’

London’s Burning, London’s Burning.

Fetch the engine, fetch the engine.

Fire! Fire!

Fire! Fire!

Pour on water, pour on water.

Build London! New London!

Brick houses. Stone tiling.

Wide streets! Tall churches!

And Saint Paul’s will have a dome on!

Thank you to the six children who volunteered their model Tudor houses for our reenactment. It was so exciting to watch them burn to ashes and smoldering cinders!
