The Great Fire Of London
By Sally Hewitt
A simple series that follows the KS1 history curriculum topics and introduces history at a level that really works.
Ways into History: The Great Fire of London looks at what happened that fateful night in 1666 and how it gave birth to a brand new London. It includes a timeline of the main events of the fire and restoration at the back of the book.
In the Ways into History series, original illustrations and simple text bring the past alive, while questions and activities encourage historical research and build up confidence and enthusiasm. The series encourages Key Stage 1 readers aged 5+ to begin to think like a historian and look for clues in descriptions and pictures that will help them answer questions about the past. The books include 'Talk About' sections that encourage readers to describe events or what people might have thought or felt at the time. Teaching and literacy notes help teachers and parents get the most out of the curriculum links in these books in a classroom or at home.
Sally Hewitt was a primary school teacher for ten years before she became a full time writer of non-fiction books for children between the ages of three and eleven.
Sally has written many books on a wide range of topics and visits schools and libraries giving talks and workshops.
