Project
 
The Great Fire of London
 
Do you know anything about the Great Fire of London? Maybe you have been to London and heard stories about what happened a long time ago? Perhaps you don't know anything at all about this fascinating piece of History yet... by the time you work your way through the 3 Project sessions below you should be able to remember lots of interesting facts about what happened and why.
 
1.  Read through the Power point below which tells you about the Great Fire of London and then read the first page of the information sheet below and have a go at answering the questions. You can either write the answers directly into your remote learning book or print the document and choose which of the 3 levels to try to complete. (The questions are the same on each sheet so you don't need to do all 3!)
 
 
2.  Samuel Pepys was an important character that helped us to find out what happened during the Great Fire. How did he share his knowledge with us? This all happened long before we had computers and the internet to find things out. 
Read through the Power point below about Samuel Pepys and then use the information to complete a Fact File about his life. Remember to include as much detail as possible and check your facts afterwards by reading the answer sheet below. You can either create your own fact file in your remote learning book or print of the one below. 
 
 
3.  Sources of evidence. 
 
When we learn about things which happened a long time ago, we need to think carefully about how we can find out information. In this session you will look at some drawings that show some different sources of information and then choose the ones that you think are the best to record. You can either write and draw them directly into your remote learning book or print off the pages and write on the sheets. The activity is below.

Watch out for a message that pops up after the questions as this is the place where the activities and discussion points begin...you may want to stop there if you did these last time or otherwise have another go or have a go for the first time if you missed it last time.
