The Great Fire of London

Get ready to recall some of your learning in Year 1 and gain new knowledge this term about one of the most famous events in British history! Year 2 will be beginning their year of learning looking at The Great Fire of London and how, even though a disastrous event, helped to cleanse the city of the dreaded plague! We will find about about Samuel Pepys and his diary, which helped provide the timeline of the fire's spread, and also Thomas Farriner, the British baker, whose bakery on Pudding Lane allegedly caused the The Great Fire of London. Pupils will learn all about how quickly the fire spread and what factors played a major role in how fast the flames traveled.
