London Is Burning - Total Song Pack

Not to be confused with the “London’s Burning” this is a new short song for young children / teachers providing some information about the KS1 topic The Great Fire of London in 1666. The lyrics are as follows

In sixteen hundred and sixty six
There was a fire in Pudding Lane
The houses were wooden not made with bricks
And the weather was hot with no rain
London is burning, by day and by night
For four days the flames leap all around
London is burning what a terrible sight
As London is burned to the ground
London is burned to the ground

The song could be used as an introduction to the topic of The Great Fire of London, as a means of memorizing the basic facts of the event, or even as the soundtrack to a little video using drawings by the children

The resource pack contains an mp3 of the song, an mp3 backing track, sheet music and lyrics
