History

Rebuilding London

As you have found out from your work about 'The Great Fire of London', after the fire had gone out, the huge task of rebuilding London got underway.  However, there were new rules introduced about how new buildings must be built, and the materials which could be used.  No longer were buildings allowed to be built using wood.  Stone and brick were the materials which had to be used. 

In October 1666, King Charles appointed architects, including Sir Christopher Wren, to start rebuilding London.  It was Sir Christopher Wren who was given the task to design and build a new St Paul's Cathedral.  It is this cathedral which is still standing today.

Read about the rebuilding of London, and the history of St. Paul's Cathedral, using the two power-points below.

You can then draw a picture of St. Paul's Cathedral.  Look carefully at the shapes of the building, and try to copy the lines accurately.  The pencil drawings below might help you to make your own drawing.  

You might even like to make a model of the cathedral.  You could use Lego, or another construction set, which you have at home.  You could even use boxes from your recycling bin.  Try to think about the shapes of the towers, and that world-famous dome.  

Your teacher would love to see a photo of your drawings or models.  Please send them to your teacher using your class email.
