The children visited Staircase House in Stockport to learn about the Great Fire of London. They had the opportunity to ask and answer the questions: 'How do we know about the Great Fire of London?' and 'What were homes like a long time ago?' The children dressed up and re-enacted the story of the Great Fire of London and experienced 'hands on' workshops including a wattle and daub workshop which showed them how houses were constructed and a workshop where they made their own potions used to cure illnesses in Stuart times.
