This worksheet from Franklin Watts is based on the book 'Toby and the Great Fire of London' by Margaret Nash and Jane Cope in the Hopscotch Histories series. The first activity asks children to write a diary entry about what they might see and feel during the fire. The second activity asks them to design a fire-resistant house. Sample text and images from the book can be used to help with the activities.The worksheet provides some excellent opportunities for cross-curricular work on this topic.
