Celebrating Guy Fawkes on 5th November 2020

 

Blwyddyn 5/6

 We have been learning why we celebrate 5th November. We watched a short video about the Gunpowder Plot to understand more about Guy Fawkes. We then carried out a "Guy Fawkes hotseating" task. We created some questions that we wanted to ask Guy Fawkes if he were still here today. We responded imaginatively to each question in our very own "Guy Fawkes Hotseat".

We watched songs and videos about The Gunpowder Plot. We found out lots about Guy Fawkes. We created our own Wanted posters. Take a look at our ideas;

We used chocolate sticks and colourful sprinkles to make some chocolate sparklers. They were yummy!

Here we are working as a team to select and use Knex pieces to build our own examples of fireworks. We really enjoyed sharing our ideas together.

Finally, we worked together to share adjectives to describe how fireworks look and sound. We used these ideas to write Firework Poems. We think they are fantastic and we had lots of fun sharing our work with eachother.
