Great Fire of London Projects

24th Mar 2022

Wednesday 23rd March marked the finale of Year 2’s project work on The Great Fire of London. Having created nets for the base, they then coloured and cut out walls and a roof and attached them together to make Tudor houses. In their Art lessons, pupils discussed artists whose works disappear and the idea of setting fire to their work. Students were inspired by artists such as Andy Goldsworthy who takes beautiful photographs of his “temporary” work to capture the memory. Inspired by the story of the cricket Ashes which are kept in an urn, one pupil decided it would be good to collect the ashes from the fire and make a clay Tudor house to store the remains.
