Bang! Whizz! Pop!

It has been an exciting week learning about Bonfire Night. We teamed up with Nursery and enjoyed a range of creative and fun learning activities, such as firework dancing with ribbons and building rockets. 

We even got the chance to hold a sparkler. The children listened carefully to the safety instructions, such as wearing gloves and holding it out straight. We had a bucket of water in the middle which we put the hot sparklers into.


We also created our firework canvases for the Papermill Art Gallery. The children are really looking forward to showing off their sparkly pictures.

Messy Mondays involved using a pump filled with paint which the children stamped on. The paint shot out and created amazing firework effects on the paper! They also had a go at blowing the paint – that was more of a challenge. And as always the children got very messy!       

Forest Schools was great fun on Thursday. A huge thank you to Joel’s Mummy and Amelia’s Mummy who came into school to help with our second session. The children built dens for their woodland friends and also threaded leaves to hang as tree decorations. We will make sure the Forest School plans are attached to the notice board so you can see what they get up to each week!

Next week, we are going to be learning the story ‘Tiger who came to tea.’

We hope you have a wonderful weekend.
