Year 1 Great Fire of London workshop
27th February 2018
The children enjoyed a Great fire of London topic linked to their enquiry question 'What can we learn from the past? The bakery fire'. It allowed the children to have a hands-on drama experience enabling them to understand what London was like in 1666 as they recreated life in Pudding Lane. They also became the fire as it grew and spread and met the famous diarist Samuel Pepys. The children learnt about the plague. where the fire started, how it started and why the houses caught alight so quickly.
