Where There’s Smoke… is an exciting programme for key stage one (5 – 7 year olds) that blends participatory drama, storytelling, teacher-in-role and paper play to explore the impact and significance of the Great Fire of London, and to enable children to empathise with the human stories involved in such a disaster.

The children travel the burned out streets of London in the company of Al who has been made homeless by the fire and is looking for his beloved cat, Lucky. As they search, they meet characters from the time such as diarist Samuel Pepys and explore their reactions to the dramatic events of September 1666. A very practical programme with lots of hands on, creative activities.
