Newspaper reports about the Great fire of london.

Yellow class newspaper reports.

In Yellow class, we have been writing newspaper reports about the Great Fire of London. First we created a headline about the report. Next we created a plan and recorded everything we already knew about the Great Fire of London.  We then used our plans to help us create sentences linked to the key facts.

Here are some of the great facts we used in our writing,. 

Indi-Rose - The fire started on Pudding lane 

Lara - 9 people died

Jesseca - Samuel Pepys told the King that London needed to blow up some of the houses to stop the fire. 

Benett - Around 13,000 houses burnt down. 

Casey - The fire spread quickly because the houses were made out of wood and close together.
