Art – Wednesday afternoon.

From the description below, draw a picture of what you think the Fire of London looked like. After you have drawn your picture, colour it in with the colours you think best fit the description.

 

The blazing fire raged through the streets of London destroying every home it touched. People were running and screaming, throwing their possessions into the River Thames. I could see chocking thick black smoke and bright orange flames. The strong, powerful wind made the flames look as though they were dancing on top of the buildings it was destroying.

 

Remember that The Great Fire of London happened in 1666.

Would the houses look the same as they do today?

 

Once you have drawn and coloured in your picture. Click the links below to look at some paintings of The Great Fire of London. 

Do they look like your picture? How are they the same? How are they different?
