As part of our topic The Great Fire of London we have been learning about the houses built in 1666. We discovered that they were called Tudor houses and were built mostly out of timber. We also learnt that the houses were built so close together and this was how the fire spread so quickly.
We then discussed houses that we live in and how they are different from Tudor houses. We discussed how modern houses are made of brick and have fire systems in place to warn us about a fire.
The children then sketched an image of a Tudor house and a modern house and wrote a paragraph comparing them. We decided that we are grateful for how houses have developed over the hundreds of years since The Great Fire of London especially now that we have toilets.
