Flammable or Non-flammable?

In Year 2 we have been looking at materials this term. We’ve been exploring their properties and their uses. We want to recreate the Great Fire of London later in the term so we investigated which materials we should use for the roofs of the houses we will make. We experimented with dry straw, wet straw and fresh plants to see which one was the most flammable. It was terribly exciting!


Of course, we talked about fire safety and how such an experiment should never be done by anyone other than a responsible adult!
