Our biggest topic pack to date! Containing everything you need to teach your class about the Great Fire of London. Over 80 resources, including animated PowerPoints, comprehension, fire safety, life in 1666 compared to London today, role-play, display resources, timelines, posters, writing frames, knowledge organisers and more.
Our pack covers important events that show children why the Great Fire of London started on Pudding Lane, London and why it was able to spread so quickly.
Our resources allow children to compare life, houses, and firefighting in London in 1666, to today. They also follow key important people such as King Charles II, Thomas Farriner, the Earl, Samuel Pepys and Thomas Bloodworth.
Children will discover how we know about the events, through the historical sources of Samuel Pepys’. diaries and learn the importance of eyewitness accounts.
Our curriculum map also helps you to extend your cross-curricular teaching even further, with a 10-page document, packed full of curriculum-based teaching ideas.
So huge, that we have had to divide the resources into 2 packs. Please download folder 1 and folder 2, to receive all 90 resources.
Each folder is roughly 50MB in size so please be patient when downloading and ensure you are connected to wifi.
The Great Fire of London Topic Pack is part of our History packs and contains the following resources:

Copyright update regarding 'Home Learning Resource Packs'
Our standard terms, conditions and copyright rules restrict the direct sharing of our resources through online portals, shared drives, school websites and social media. We also ask that resources are not printed and shared amongst teachers.
However we realise that due to the current climate and the nature of these home learning packs means that these rules are restricting the main purpose of the packs: helping teachers to provide a structured home learning experience for their classes.
With this in mind, this, and our other 'Home Learning Resource Packs' will be exempt from the above rules. We do however ask that the packs are not made available for PUBLIC download through any means and are only shared with your immediate colleagues and the parents of the children in your school. Where possible, please continue to direct other teachers to our website to download the resources for themselves.
These amended rules will remain in place for the duration of the school closures. Once the closures are at an end our standard copyright rules, terms and conditions will come back into place and we would expect all copies of the resources as to be removed from shared drives, parent/teacher portals and all services such as see-saw etc.
Thank you for your cooperation.
