Let's get creative!

We have learnt so much about 'The Great Fire of London', over the past couple of weeks.  Can you remember why the houses caught fire so quickly?

That's right, it was because they were built using wood.  Wood catches fire and burns very easily. 

When we look at pictures of houses from 1666, we can see the wooden frames which formed the structure of the houses.  

We would like you to have a go at making a picture or a model of a Tudor house, similar to those found in London before fire destroyed them in 1666.

You could draw a house, and colour it using coloured pencils or felt-tipped pens.  You could make a picture using collage techniques, where you could cut out and stick the house shape onto paper or card, using different materials.  If you are feeling very creative, you may decide that you would like to make a model of a house using boxes and other materials. 

These pictures might give you some ideas for what you could do. 

Don't forget, your teacher would love to see a photo of your finished work.
