Great Fire of London - KS1 - How has fire safety changed since the Great Fire?

This resource is designed for teaching the Great Fire of London KS1 History unit. It includes an engaging presentation and a differentiated worksheet with stickers.

The presentation explores how the Great Fire of London gave birth to the very first fire brigades in the late 17th century. It also looks at how fire safety has improved, including changes in our homes and innovations in fire fighting equipment.

There are two differentiated worksheets which challenge children to sort fire safety related pictures and vocabulary into ‘Now’ and ‘Then (1666)’. They include:

  • a standard activity sheet with eight words/phrases for children to draw and label
  • an easier activity sheet (with stickers) with ten words/phrases for children to label
