An excellent, fun and imaginative play linked to the Great Fire of London. It is an end of year Play/Production or Assembly.
This play script an be used as a finale to the history topic great fire of London taught in year 2. It is mainly about the historical event although there are other parts with gingerbread men (getting baked in the bakery and 3 little pigs) to give it a modern and contemporary twist (which links to traditional stories with a twist in year 2).
The script includes a subtle twist and incorporates characters from fairy tales because traditional stories is also taught in year 2. However, it can be easily adapted if need be to make parts shorter or longer depending on the cohort.
It was originally used to cater for a 4 form entry. There are at least 40 speaking parts and other parts for singers and dancers to allow for 120 parts. Again if you are a small school, then all the children can participate in the dances or singing as opposed to small groups. The play is designed so that it can be used in isolation even if you haven’t taught GFOL this year. The resource includes a play script, lyrics for home, links to songs, You tube links with songs, dancing list, costume list, stage directions. All you need to finish of the year after SATs. Enjoy.
