Wrappers with attitude

Wrappers with attitude

It began in the King’s baker’s house on Pudding Lane . . .

As part of our London homework projects, we presented our research in many different ways. One year 3 child represented the Great Fire of London, with silhouettes of charred buildings illuminated by flames.

But which year 3 superstar made this amazing piece of art?  

She’s hiding from the fire but if you look carefully you can see her in the shadows.

Here are some facts about the Great Fire of London:

  • The Great Fire of London happened between 2-5 September in 1666.
  • The fire began in a bakery in Pudding Lane.
  • Before the fire began, there had been a drought in London that lasted for 10 months, so the city was very dry.
  • In 1666, lots of people had houses made from wood and straw which burned easily. Houses were also built very close together.
  • We know what happened during the fire because people back then wrote about it in letters and newspapers – for instance, Samuel Pepys wrote about it in his diary.
  • Artists who were alive in 1666 painted pictures of the fire afterwards, so we know what it would have looked like if we’d been there too.
  • To fight fires during this time, people would have used leather buckets, metal hooks and water squirts.
  • People whose homes had burned down lived in tents in the fields around London while buildings were rebuilt.
  • When houses were rebuilt, a lot of them were made in bricks instead of wood, and they weren’t built so close together.
  • Sir Christopher Wren designed a monument to remember the Great Fire of London, which still stands today.

Give Me A Piano And I Will Give You Music

While waiting to enter the theatre, the mood was set by the soothing strains of gentle piano music. Do you recognise the pianist?

Life is like a piano. What you get out of it depends on how you play it.
