The Great Fire of London

Today we started to learn about the Great Fire of London. We found about Samuel Pepys. He kept a secret coded diary all about the Great Fire of London. In order to protect his expensive cheese and wine he buried them in his garden. We couldn't believe our eyes when we found buried cheese, wine, a picture and a newspaper article all about the Great Fire of London.

Art

Today we made houses to show the Great Fire of London. We drew them and carefully cut out the windows. We used tissue paper in the windows and doors to show the flames spreading. Did you know that the materials used to build the houses in 1666 were very flammable?

London's Burning Poetry

Today we looked at London’s Burning poem. We noticed that the author used repetition to make the poem clear and how exclamation marks were used to show how dramatic the fire was. In groups we learnt the poem and used our expressive voices to perform it.
