In Year 6, we pride ourselves in keeping up to date with contemporary events. This September marks 350 years since the Great Fire of London in 1666. A fire which originated from Pudding Lane (EC3), severely wounded the English capital and destroyed around 13,200 homes.
But amid all the destruction was an event which changed the face of the capital for ever, and gave birth to the modern UK capital which more than 8.6 million call home.
In Year 6 we revisited the events of 1666 and how it impacted the society we lived in today. This also allowed us to consider how we deal with fire in contemporary society, in school and in the home.
