In this option (Mondays and Fridays) based at Temple Bar, we introduce Christopher Wren and tell his story. How did he become the architect of the new city and the magnificent St Paul’s?
The children will visit Wren’s buildings, experiment with the scientific instruments he used (microscopes etc) and then design their own towers with quill pens and building blocks.
We walk the streets where the Fire raged and tell the story of its spread, the destruction of London, and how it enabled Wren to transform the City. We look at St Paul’s Cathedral and go inside either St Vedast-Alias-Foster or St Martin Ludgate, where pupils will dress up.
