Burning Houses!

We finally got to burn our houses this week!

Due to windy weather conditions, we were unable to burn our houses last term but the children were excited that we finally got to do it this week.

On Tuesday we all went onto the field and watched as the houses were set alight. This demonstrated to the children how quickly a fire can spread, especially when houses are so close together. The houses burnt really quickly, within a matter of minutes.

The children were all really well behaved and had great fun watching the fire as it spread. They also enjoyed watching Mr Hobbs put out the final few flames with the fire extinguisher!
