'From Pudding Lane to Now and Beyond'
Our topic this term is Guy Fawkes and the Great Fire of London.
Throughout this topic we will be looking at The Gunpowder Plot and the events of The Great Fire of London.
Using the setting of the Great Fire of London, children will use their senses to imaginatively describe what it might have been like to be there at the time of the fire. They will also recall key events of the fire with a historical focus.
In English we will be reading the text, “Vlad and the Great Fire of London”. Vlad the flea narrates this tale about his adventure on the back of his friend, Boxton the rat. They love eating rubbish (Boxton) and biting people (Vlad). Unfortunately most of the people Vlad bites seem to die of the plague. One night in Pudding Lane they witness the start of the blaze and need to run for their lives. As they dash through the city they see the people fighting to stop the flames and those like the diarist, Samuel Pepys who try to save precious objects. They end their adventure in the fields outside London with the refugees who have lost their homes.
