The Great Fire of London

England, Scotland, Wales

Popular

London's Burning! Can you even imagine a fire that big?! On Pudding Lane, over 350 years ago in 1666, the great city of London BURST into flames! It was an enormous fire, and one that lasted for four whole days ...

Just think, what it must have been like: fighting to save your family, your animals and your home?! Come with One Day, Samuel Pepys and a whole host of wonderful characters as your pupils creatively learn about the world-famous Great Fire of London.

One Day will work with your pupils through a dynamic and creative workshop with our fully trained professional facilitator. Our One Day facilitator and your budding thespians will explore a diverse range of key themes such as enhanced creative teaching of the chosen topic, stimulating imagination, encouraging discussion, enhanced speaking and listening skills, improved confidence, teamwork  and oh yes… let’s not forget… bags and bags of fun

"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!"
