The most dramatic fire in the history of London was brought back to life by pupils at a Haverhill primary school.

Year Two children of Clements Primary School in Chalkstone Way celebrated the end of their Great Fire of London topic by recreating the event that took place in 1666.

The children spent time researching, designing and making their Tudor houses.

Firefighters from Haverhill fire station very kindly helped to recreate the fire so the children could witness first hand how quickly the fire would have spread.

Year Two class teacher, Clare Skinner,said: “Luckily we are in 2017 and the firemen were able to put out the fire out safely and quickly with their hose.

“We would like to to thank you to the Haverhill Fire Service for their help and allowing us to visit the Fire Station earlier on in the topic.”
