Fireworks

Remember, remember the 5th of November... 
We had great fun on Tuesday learning about Bonfire Night and why it is celebrated. We listened to the story of Guy Fawkes and found out how he didn't like King James and wanted to blow up The Houses of Parliament. Thankfully he was stopped right in time and as way of celebrating, fireworks were set off and have been ever since. 

Fireworks are so very beautiful but also so very dangerous. We learnt these key rules to follow during bonfire night:
Always wear gloves when handling sparklers.
Put your used sparkler into a bucket full of water/sand.
Tie your hair up.
Keep warm!
Let only adults light fireworks and sparklers.
Stand back from fires.
Wear your trousers over your booted footwear.
Never touch fireworks and keep them in a box out of the way.
Keep pets indoors if possible as they can become very frightened.
Always hold your sparkler by its handle (the narrower part). 
Only let a grown up light your sparkler.
Never try to touch a lit firework.

We dressed Rose up ready for Bonfire Night. The children remembered to keep Rose nice and warm whilst also protecting her body by using gloves and wellies. 

I then read the class a story called Sparks in the Sky. We discussed the noises fireworks make and their beautiful colours as well as the smells of hot food and fair rides! The afternoon was full of firework crafts and activities. 

I wonder if you'll see any more fireworks this weekend? Remember to stay fire safe šŸ”„šŸ’„
