Samuel Pepys and the Great Fire of London (KS1) more lessons

Lesson Plans

Last updated: 21st October 2016

These four extra Great Fire of London teaching accounts were written by teachers who attended Nuffield Primary History in-service courses. The teachers have adapted a range of Nuffield Primary History approaches to the needs of their classes.

All four show Nuffield teaching principles in action, particularly challenge, questioning, authenticity, accessibility and communication.

The accounts also demonstrate how teachers can successfully integrate history with other subjects, primarily with literacy, but also with ICT, art, design and drama. See also the cross-curricular learning link on the right. (These resources are attached below)
