Imagine you were Toby racing through the streets of London to give the book to Mr Pepys. What did you see? What did you hear?  What did you smell?  Use some of the words we learned last week to fill in this diary page about how you felt. Remember to use FredFingers to spell and Rainbow Grammar to write a sentence.  


                     I could hear massive explosions in the distance.



This half-term we are learning about the Great Fire of London. In 1666 there were no cameras so we know about the Great Fire of London from paintings, letters, diaries, and other ways of recording that were around at the time. Here is a famous painting of the Great Fire. 

How did the Great Fire of London begin? Watch this video and learn how it started.  Don't forget to do the quiz at the end. 



Look at these pictures of houses from 1666. What do you notice? How are they different to homes in the present?

In 1666 most of the houses were made of wood and were black and white. Can you create your own Stuart house? You could use pencil, paints, black paper...

The Great Fire of London started in a bakery on Pudding Lane.

Have a go at baking your own bread just like a baker!
