What does a Great Fire of London workshop cover?

In this workshop, the children will learn the key features of the Great Fire story, through questioning and participation in role play, drama and studying historical sources.

The session also encourages children to compare and contrast life today with life in the 1600’s and develop historical enquiry skills.
