KS1 Great Fire of London Workshop

Posted on by wrightr

Today Ks1 took part in a fantastic workshop run by no other than Samuel Pepys himself!

The children enjoyed stepping back over 350 years to ‘The Great Fire of London’ and learning more about what Samuel witnessed during this historic event. The Great Fire formed only a very small part of his diary but we know much today about it due to his records.

The children took part in a range of drama activities. The workshop began with a range of drama games to warm up their brains, get their bodies moving and prepare them for the session. Following this, the children acted out the events of ‘The Great Fire of London,’ they freeze framed different characters and key events.
