The Great Fire of London

3rd December 2021

In History this week, Year 2 pupils have been investigating one of the most significant events in the history of our capital, The Great Fire of London, which swept through the City of London in 1666 destroying 13,200 houses, 87 parish churches and St Paul’s Cathedral. After learning how the fire started in a bakery in Pudding Lane and raged for four days, Year 2 created some very dramatic pictures of the Great Fire including 3D houses replicating the City of London at that time. The lesson was a fascinating insight into one of the most tragic events in our city’s history, of course following on from The Great Plague!
