The Great Fire of London - Background Information


A fact-packed information sheet that will support delivery of lessons related to this topic. The questions encourage the children to think about the differences between 1666 and modern day with regards to the way the fire spread and how it was dealt with.

How To Use

This sheet could be used as a teacher aid to fill in the necessary details needed to deliver the Great Fire of London lessons. Alternatively, it can be shared with older children for them to carry out their own research.

This sheet is needed for the lesson that encourages the students to write a newspaper report about the Great Fire.  It would also be really useful in the lesson that focuses on writing a diary entry about the incident.  Both these lesson plans can be found slightly further down the page.
