Can I describe some ways in which how we live now is different to 1666?

 

In order to understand why London burned so quickly, we recreated our own Pudding Lane.  We looked at the difference between houses today and those in 1666. 

 

We realised that houses built at that time were made out wood and straw which easily catches fire. 

 

When we had completed our houses we took them outside where a fire fighter from the local fire brigade, set fire to our model.  The fire spread very quickly. 

 

We then wrote a diary entry for our cold task in our English books.
