The Great Fire of London

This half term we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. We learned about how the fire started in the bakery on Pudding Lane by being bakers ourselves! 

We have explored the reasons why the fire spread so quickly. We used drama to bring our learning to life and imagine what it would have been like. We explored what we would be able to see, hear and smell. We used this to generate ambitious vocabulary to help us create our own version of the 'London's Burning' poem and also write a diary in the style of Samuel Pepys.
