History - The Great Fire of London

In Year 1 we have been learning about The Great Fire of London. 

We learnt about where the fire started, when and why. We discovered that the fire spread quickly due to the long, hot summer and the materials that the houses were made of.


We learnt about Samuel Pepys, the famous diary writer. We wrote our own diaries and thought about how we would have felt had we been living in London in 1666.


We compared London then and now and even made our own quills to write with. Imagine how difficult it would be to write a whole diary with a quill!
