Pupils at Feltham Hill Infant school were taken on a journey back in time to 1966 and the Great Fire of London.

As part of this terms topics children in Year Two are being taught about the fire which gutted the city of London and in an exciting twist were visited by Kat Beaty, facilitator from the Freshwater theatre company, last Wednesday (Nov 12).

Members put on a theatrical performance narrating the story through a series of events to the children and held an interactive drama workshop helping them to learn more.

They recreated the scenes of life on Puddling Lane, the fire itself, the frantic escape, camping at Moorfields and the decisions about how to rebuild the city.

This week, the school will also be holding open mornings on Tuesday (Nov 18), and Thursday (Nov 20), for parents looking for a place for their child(ren) to start in September 2015.

They learned about King Charles II, Samuel Pepys and the Lord Mayor of London too.

Georgia Brown, Y2 group leader, who said the children thought the session was "awesome", added: "Kat was really excellent, she held the children's interest totally for an hour, they made themselves into a street full of houses, became moving pictures of the bakery, a fishmonger and laundry.

"There was even an re-enactment of Samuel Pepys' household at the moment the fire was discovered in London".
