Samuel Pepy’s




Key Stage 1 had a very exciting visit from Samuel Pepys. He told us all about the great fire of London and inspired some fantastic diary writing:

I decided to walk up a hill and watch the fire from there. I didn’t believe it. The fire was fierce and angry. ( Michelle)

I was horrified the fire was spreading around the whole of London. I was shivering with fear. I saw buildings on fire and homes being knocked down. (Malakhi)

You could hear people screaming and houses crack down. I could still see people jumping out of their houses into the river and babies crying. (Munna)

The flames were jumping house to house. I froze in terror. Finally i got to King Charles and shouted ” The fire is spreading all around London!” ( Ben)
