The Great Fire of London

England, Scotland, Wales

Popular

A fire that burned across London - can you even imagine a fire that big?! What would it have been like to fight to save your family, your animals and your home? Let’s find out how the Great Fire started and who was involved!

Your class will…

  • Explore a significant event beyond living memory
  • Explore the timeline of the fire, looking at key people and events
  • Have a great day!

Option 1 : Creative Play workshops are short and sweet, designed to be a burst of creativity to keep children engaged. As the sessions are usually only an hour long, we can work with four classes across the school day.

Option 2 : One Day Drama packages offer a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils in order to explore the topic through drama. The focus of a One Day Drama workshop is always the content and learning, but we do offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can share what they have done throughout the day. This isn’t necessarily a performance, but an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience. They can share their learning with their peers, or if you wanted, parents.

This workshop includes props and accessories to aid learning

Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!

"A huge thanks to your Facilitator, who added that crucial element of fun into the Great Fire drama day. His skill with the children and subtle behaviour management was noted by all teachers. Drama isn’t something we do as much as we would like, so having you in for the day is a real treat. He interacted with children in a positive and encouraging way and brought out hidden talents in some of our pupils. (We are always amazed when the most powerful, assertive line comes from a child who is usually quiet and unassuming!) His sense of humour kept the staff entertained and One Day are always a welcome guest in our staffroom!"
