Youngsters celebrated the end of another school year after setting fire to a replica model of London last week.
Year 2 pupils at Farnham Green Primary School, Royal Close, Seven Kings, built houses, inns and St Paul’s Cathedral before setting it alight under the watchful eye of the fire brigade.
The Great Fire of London event, an annual affair at the school, involved more than 100 models, which were made and assembled in the school’s playground.
Organiser and artist Terry Quirk said: “It was great – sadly, there was nothing left for the children to take home!”
