This is a 'Great Fire of London' craft project which makes a wonderful display and reinforces learning in a very visual and creative way. This project includes three cityscapes to print onto black sugar paper, two different sets of flames for students to colour in, a full set of illustrated instructions both as a PDF and a PowerPoint. It's a simple project but highly effective if you wish to make a fantastic display. This can be a table top display, which I think is the most effective, or can be put on a wall.

This is a fun, entertaining as well as a challenging lesson, designed to question and evaluate the causes of the Great Fire of London in the summer of 1666. The hook is Samuel Pepys; why did he bury his cheese and why did he bury it alongside items that were surely more valuable? The lesson comes complete with differentiated resources as students have to plot the causes and consequences of the fire on a visual display using logs,flames and smoke. Notes have been put on each slide on how to deliver the activities and answers to some of the questions posed as well as suggested teaching strategies. This lesson is active, exciting and engaging and would also suit a non specialist. It is aimed at key stage 3, but can be delivered to key stage 2 pupils also. The lesson comes with suggested teaching and learning strategies and are linked to the latest historical interpretations, video clips and debate. The lesson is enquiry based with a key question posed at the start of the lesson and revisited at the end to show the progress of learning. The lessons are fully adaptable in PowerPoint format and can be changed to suit.
