We started the project by going on a walking tour of where the Great Fire started and hearing about how London was rebuilt. We then heard the story of the Great Fire from lots of different perspectives: the baker; the King; the dutch immigrants. We considered the question: who was to blame for the fire? We explored diaries and had a go at writing our own diaries from the perspective of the people who were alive at the time. We finished by thinking about how 1666 London compares with 2023 London.
