Great Fire of London

It’s 1666, and you live in London with your mum and your cat, Max. In the middle of the night, a fire starts on your street, Pudding Lane. When Max goes missing, you stumble across Samuel Pepys, who calls on your help to stop all of London from burning down. Will you be able to stop the fire, and will you ever see Max again?

In this Experience your children will learn about:

  • The causes of the fire
  • Methods of extinguishing the fire
  • The effects of the fire
  • The historical context of the fire (Pepys, King Charles II, 1666)

This Experience includes a Teacher Resource Pack linking theĀ Great Fire of London Experience to:
