Topic

Do you remember where the fire started during the Great Fire of London? (The bakery, Pudding Lane.) How did the fire start? (Thomas Farrinor, the baker, forgot to put out the fire in a baking oven on the Saturday evening. A spark of fire dropped out of the oven onto straw and bundles of sticks. The straw started to burn and then the sticks caught fire.)

 

What would you do if you saw a fire in a bakery? (Leave the building straight away and tell an adult.). Write ‘Safety Tips’ (you can write this for your child) Remind them to STOP, DROP and ROLL.
