Beechwood Primary School

Year 2 Great Fire of London Workshop

As part of our ‘Great Fire of London’ topic, we have an immersive workshop coming to school on Monday 3rd October. The workshop will last all day and will consist of making and role play. The pupils will be met by Tobias Wheldrake, a gentleman of London who will guide them around the city.

After a short introduction, the children will engage in a series of activities and role-play that will immerse them in history. While working, the pupils will also be spreading news and asking questions to learn more about the fire and how to stop it.

The afternoon session will be anarchaeological investigation, clearing away the rubble and helping Robert Hooke to relocate families who have lost their houses to the fire.
