The Great Fire of London Resources

In 1666 the Great Fire of London destroyed two thirds of the City. It started (on 2nd September) as a small fire accidentally in Pudding Lane in the City of London, and raged for four days as an enormous fire.

Here are some suggested teaching ideas:

  • Write a newspaper report that tells the story of the Great Fire of London.
  • Write a diary entry from the point of view of somebody living in London at the time of the Great Fire (see Resources below).
  • Could you make your own models and recreate the Great Fire, taking appropriate safety precautions!
