English Book

Today we need to look at our Great Fire of London book. It is by an author called Emma Adams and has some amazing illustrations by James Weston Lewis that will help us to imagine London in 1666 and what happened in the fire.


Miss Wilson has recorded herself reading you the start to the book as part of our lesson today.
