In Mantle this half term, Reception will be commissioned by a very important person to help put out a very big fire in London! We will be focusing on history in this Mantle, and comparing modern-day fire fighting to how they did it in 1666 during the Great Fire of London.


The children will get the chance to talk to some real firefighters, and look at closely at some of the equipment used today when the fire service visit school.


We will be looking closely at the houses in 1666 and decide why the fire spread so quickly through them. We are even going to make our own Pudding Lane in DT!


Keep checking in here to see how our story develops!
