This week we have been learning about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot and how this has lead to our celebrations on Bonfire Night. The children have really enjoyed learning about this part of our history and have produced some lovely work based on the subject. We have designed our very own firework rockets and produced some amazing pictures of fireworks.
We also simulated our very own 'explosion' by putting Mentos into a bottle of Diet Coke and watched for the chemical reactions. It caught us all by surprise and rocketed approximately 8ft into the air - lots of fun to watch.
Puffin class also discussed how to be really safe on Bonfire Night and came up with some fantastic ideas....
*Stay with your adult
*Don't go near the fire
*Don't touch the fireworks
*Don't play with fireworks and also
*Keep your pets safe and inside.
We hope you have a lovely Bonfire Night and enjoy all of the beautiful fireworks.
