These four extra Great Fire of London teaching accounts (attached below) were written by teachers who attended Nuffield Primary History in-service courses. 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.
