A Great Fire? Perfect for some awesome Chestnuts!

Champion Chestnut warmed us up for Wednesday with a red-hot assembly full of facts about the Great Fire of London. We learnt all about how the fire spread very quickly from the bakery where it started because of hot, dry weather and strong winds.

We were also treated to some superb writing from the children- here's just a few quotes from their work, which they read to us brilliantly! Well done Chestnut!

"I was sleeping and I was suddenly woken up by scared people sceaming loudly. I saw worried people running away quickly to the river. Dusty smoke was spreading fiercely in the strong wind heading to my street. Big houses were being burnt down and the fire was crackling. Terrified people were shaking in their boots because it was so loud..."

"I saw a massive fire and it was coming this way. I smelt the dusty swirling smoke. I heard people screaming, "Help!" I felt sad and scared because my house was on fire. I helped put the fire out and ran to the River Thames..."

"I looked out of my window and saw red hot flames flickering. I smelt disgusting smoke spreading around my house. I heard scared people shouting, "Help!" and crackling flames. I was scared because my house was on fire. Quickly, I ran to the RIver Thames to get a boat ride."

Have a look at some of the pictures from our assembly below. You can click on a thumbnail to see the full pictures.
