The Fire of London

Through music, art, writing, ICT and history we became detectives to find out how and why the Great Fire of London spread. We discovered it started in Pudding Lane by a baker and the reasons why it spread so quickly. So come and ask us.

"The most interesting thing I learnt was that Samuel Pepys buried his wine, cheese and diary in his garden to keep them safe from the fire".

"The most interesting thing I learnt was that King Charles II ordered houses to be pulled down so that the Fire could not spread".

"The most interesting thing I learnt was that the fire spread quickly because the streets were filled with rubbish, houses were close together and it had been a hot summer".

Florence Nightingale

"I really enjoyed doing drama. I had to imagine I was an injured soldier. I used my senses to describe the scene and then used this for my writing."

"I was a nurse helping injured soldiers. It wasn’t very nice. Rats, people crying and very smelly. This gave me great ideas I could use for my writing."
