Real-life artefacts and documentation enable readers to build a true and real account of the Great Fire and how it shaped Britain today. An exciting resource book for primary schools and any child interested in this chapter of London's history. Original fawn cloth, red titling, spine darkened, bookplate on front pastedown, a little marked to front, foredge slightly spotted. Part of the Usborne Reading Programme, this book is for children who can read fluently but are still building their confidence.

An exciting non-fiction text that will capture pupils’ interest through its quest to find the real story behind the Great Fire. This has to be one of *the* most hauntingly stunning visual representation of The Great Fire of London that we've ever laid eyes on. His collaborations with Mick Davis include The Awful Killing of Sarah Watts, one of the most infamous crimes of the Victorian period and Visitors’ Historic Britain: Somerset.

This truly engaging read would be an asset to any library, classroom or bookshelf and will undoubtedly delight any reader, young or old. This dramatic visualisation of the Great Fire describes the very different face of 17 th-century London, with its crowded streets and wooden houses, so close together that neighbours could lean out of windows and touch the opposite building.

The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults. The richly detailed illustrations and text work effectively together to portray 17th century London and the changes it went through during this turbulent time. The two friends visit the bakery on Pudding Lane and witness the start of the fire before they join the masses of people fleeing the fire.

Spelling Seeds have been designed to complement Writing Roots by providing weekly, contextualised sequences of sessions for the teaching of spelling that include open-ended investigations and opportunities to practise and apply within meaningful and purposeful contexts, linked (where relevant) to other areas of the curriculum and a suggestion of how to extend the investigation into home learning. Bought as a Christmas present for my son as he had been learning about it at school and they used the same book. A simple and dramatic introduction to the Great Fire of London in 1666 – what caused it, how it spread, how it was put out and how the city was rebuilt. Emma Adams grew up spending lots of her time in her local library, reading Roald Dahl books and imagining she was Matilda.
