Great Fire of London Workshop

One of the biggest fires to affect our country – the Great Fire of London is an important piece of history. Our character will guide the children through the events that unfolded. It was all started in pudding lane by Thomas Farriner the baker. We will follow the spread of the fire and look at the path of destruction that it left. We will learn how it affected future building regulations within the London area.

One important aspect we will look at is how people managed to escape the fire. Combating the fire was done by using chain gangs and creating fire blocks. We will see how the fire affected the people of London in the aftermath, once it had finished.


Why Do People Like To Use Us?

First of all, we take you on a journey. In addition to this we use lots props and artefacts to bring our workshops to life. The whole day will involve the children. There will be calls for discussions, acting, performing and educating – all in the same day. As a result, by the end of the day the children will be able to demonstrate a vast array of new knowledge, vocabulary and skills relating to the topic.
