On the very night that the Gunpowder Plot was foiled, on November 5th, 1605, bonfires were set alight to celebrate the safety of the King. Since then, November 5th has become known as Bonfire Night. The event is commemorated every year with fireworks and burning effigies of Guy Fawkes on a bonfire.
Today the over 2's discussed at circle time the importance about firework night and staying away from fireworks and being safe. The children discussed what they would be up to over the fire work weekend and if they were going to see any fire works.
The children made rockets out of kitchen roll holders and tissue papers. The children also made fire work pictures out of paints which they used kitchen roll holders that they cut up to make splatters and patterns on the paper.
