Bonfire Night

The half-term break gave us a chance to recharge our batteries, and Form 1 have come back ready for action!

This week, we travelled back 418 years to learn about The Gunpowder Plot. It was on the 5th November 1605 that Guy Fawkes was caught below the Houses of Parliament with barrels of gunpowder, his aim was to kill King James I. He did not succeed and King James announced that we would celebrate his failure each year – now known as Bonfire Night. Form 1 had great fun listening to his story and created lovely pieces of writing. They experimented with forks to create firework pictures, dipped marshmallows in chocolate sauce and sprinkles to create ‘sparklers’, and developed their handwriting skills by writing the poem ‘Remember, Remember, the 5th of November’.
