The Tudor Buildings of London 1666

Peregrines are learning about The Great Fire of London in Topic lessons this term. This week we found out about Tudor houses: how they were built, and why they might catch fire easily. We looked at some examples of Tudor buildings, and discussed the materials used to build them. We talked about life in 17th Century London, with no running water, candles for light, open fires for heating, and how it might be different from today. Pupils then drew their own sketch of a Tudor building, and labelled the thatched roof, wattle and daub limewashed walls, and oak beams on their picture.
