Many, many people were left homeless and lost all of their possessions – which must have been incredibly difficult, as most people were poor to begin with. speaking of sequencing, we have a great, hands-on sequencing activity that really brings this topic to life. Dr Phoebe Chapple was an Australian doctor who paid to travel to England and join the medics serving in the First World War. It contains all the information you need to teach the topic to a greater depth, whether it is the first time or if you want to refresh your knowledge and find out some fun facts to keep the subject lively. The lessons include a ‘warm-up’ game/ activity, the main teaching session and independent work, and a plenary.Use our Great Fire of London Information PowerPoint to explain the sequence of events, then ask children to pretend to be just like Samuel Pepys, and create their own first-hand account with a couple of diary entries. It is 1666 and Vlad the flea and his friend Boxton the rat, love eating and biting their way around London. They then provide a starting point for comparing what houses were made from and how close they were placed. This is a set of 5 lessons which focus on the personal testimonies of those caught up in the First World War.

The powerpoint is editable to suit your specific audience but the illustrations are the copyright of Sam Cunningham so should not be used elsewhere. The Great Fire of London was a huge fire that destroyed around 13,000 houses, nearly 100 churches, and St Paul’s Cathedral in London, in 1666. During the drama session, ask the children to go to sleep, they hear noises; screams andcrackling awake them. A mixture of images of materials and clues from 1666 and now that lead to discussion about things that caused the Great Fire to spread. Using drama techniques ask the children to move around the classroom as if it is the street and communicate with each other in role.
