Interactive Flash

Transport your class back in time to the fateful night of 2 September 1666 with our evocative interactive resource. Miles, a London stable boy, tells the story of the Great Fire while a fantastically detailed illustration scrolls across the screen, and the sound of fire crackling and people shouting can be heard in the background!

    Great Fire of London

    Brilliant panorama. My year 2 class loved it. great introduction to the topic. Really dramatic pictures bring to life the reasons why the fire spread. Very useful resource.
