Great Fire in Year 3!!

On the 29th April 2019, Pitsford Class re-created the Great Fire of Northampton. We made little Tudor houses and then set them on fire. This made us appreciate how quickly a medieval fire would have spread due to the houses being made of wood and being very close together in narrow streets. We also learnt how attempts were made to out the fire and stop it spreading even further. We formed a human chain and passed ‘buckets’ of water along the line! We had a great day researching about the fire and then using our facts to write a set of instruction – ‘How to put out a fire in 1675’.
