Tudor-style houses which the boys and girls had made out of card were set alight in the playground before being extinguished by firefighters.

Year 2 teacher Saskia Joyles said: “Our fire began in the bakery and spread to nearby houses.

“After the fire was out, there was an opportunity for the children to speak to the firefighters and take a look around the fire engine.

“They also listened to a talk about fire safety. It was a very informative day.”
