AMAZED pupils stepped back in time to discover the historical event which saw London shoot up in flames.

Oaklands Infant School in Crowthorne learned about the fire of London in a history class on October 23.

The innovate lesson saw Year 2 pupils recreate the streets of London from the 1600s and how the dramatic events unfolded.

A mini London was built to replicate famous landmarks such as St Paul's Cathedral and the Bakery.

Children watched the fire burn all over the houses and were amazed at how quickly the fire spread.

Ellen Weston, deputy headteacher and year 2 teacher said: "Year 2 pupils at Oaklands Infant School have been learning about the famous fire of London and how people lived in the 1600s.

"Luckily the rain stayed away and they were able to see their houses burn down.

"The children were amazed by how quickly the fire spread, just what it would have been like in 1666.”
