Living through the Great Fire of London (Part 1)

In this lesson we will set the scene for the devastating fire of 1666 and will meet some of the objects that would have been there. We will link the objects to Londoners during the fire and bring them to life through improvisation. We will also consider why we re-enact scenes from the past.
