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.
