The Great Fire of London


This term, our topic is The Great Fire of London.


We will be learning all about the historical events and making geographical links to London today.  The children will also recognise that London is our capital city and it is the residence of our queen.


At the end of the topic, the children will use their model houses to re-create the scene of Pudding Lane from 1666.  They will then set fire to them and sing the song of London's Burning.
