Enquiry

  • Watch the video of the London streets in 1666. What do you notice? Write in the bubbles or in your books some thoughts of what you see and think.
  • Use what you have seen in the video and the pictures to draw a typical street in 1666.
  • Now we’re thinking about what we would have changed to prevent the Fire of London.
  • The houses were too close together, there was no running water, the top floors poked out of the front so fire could jump across the street.
  • Think about these things that were wrong – draw a street, still in Tudor style, that would have made it more difficult for the fire to spread.

3:00
