16 Oct Great Fire of London
History lesson in Year 2
For our History topic in Year 2 we have been learning about the Great Fire of London. Today, we were thinking about understanding what life was like in the past compared to today- specifically thinking about how we are protected from fire today.
On our walk around the school, we found many different things that protect us from fire within our school. We found things such as fire alarms, fire extinguishers, fire drill plans, smoke detectors, fire safety instructions and fire doors! We then thought about the things outside of school that we have access to such as the emergency services and fire sprinkler systems! We learnt that in 2023 we have a lot more resources to protect us from fire than they did in 1666.
