Gretton's Burning!

To finish off our Great Fire of London topic, we went up to Forest School with our Tudor houses. We had a treasure hunt quiz, based on what we had learnt during the last few weeks. Next we toasted marshmallows over the fire, and drank some hot chocolate. Finally, we set fire to the houses we had made. We positioned them close together, as they would have been in Pudding Lane, and the wind did it's job of spreading the flames, from one house to the next. The children were not at all sad about their houses being turned to cinders!

After that, on our return to school, we had a volcanic eruption. Sarah  had made a volcano at home, and brought it in for us to look at. We added the ingredients to make the volcano erupt - and stood back to watch!
