  • Write a diary entry as if you were there at the time
  • Draw a picture and label the key places that were affected by the fire
  • Create a poster detailing the main events
  • Compile a non- fiction fact sheet/book
  • Make a voice recording of a mock radio show talking about the tragic event

 

For anyone who is feeling adventurous and fancies a trip to London, the Museum of London has a Great Fire of London exhibition. Don’t forget to take photos if you go!

Your research will be due in on the first Friday back from half term.
