Fire in the bakery

The Great fire of London 1666 started because a little spark jumped out of a fire in the bakery in Thomas Farynor's bakery in Pudding Lane.

A maid died in the fire because she was too scared to jump. She told us all about it and we asked her lots of questions.

The maid was terrified!


  1. Hello 2/1,

    I was impressed by your re-enactment of the Great Fire of London. What started out in a bakery became a great tragedy.

    I also visited your post about your class bears. I was so impressed I prepared a post with extra information about what your bears and students have seen, especially in Australia. Here is a link...
