Christ The King RC Primary School

The great fire of London


In Year 2,  the children study Bonfire Night and The Great Fire of London. They investigate the events of the Gunpowder Plot which led to Bonfire Night being introduced into the UK calendar, with opportunities provided for families to recount their Bonfire Night experiences. They  also study the Great Fire of London, and decide whether or not it improved London for those living there. Additionally, they will learn to interpret evidence from the time and afterwards, examining whether or not the sources are reliable.
