We are really enjoying finding out about the different aspects of the Great Fire of London. Lots of people saved their precious belongings on the boats of the Thames and many escaped on boats too. We are preparing a display for the corridor and needed some boats for the River Thames. We had to work really hard to follow the instructions to fold the boats in the right places at the right times! It was quite tricky but the finished boats look fabulous. We know that they wouldn’t really have been brightly coloured in 1666 but we want our display to be colourful and our boats to be individual. Why not have a go yourself? Click here to follow the same instructions that we used.
