Today is Bonfire Day, and what fun we had finding out why we have Bonfire Night. The wind made it difficult because all of the story pictures had blown away. We had to find them before we could tell the story. We found out all about Guy Fawkes and how he wanted to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Can you remember why Guy Fawkes and his friends didn’t like the new king?
We made some of our own explosions. They didn’t bang, but they were amazing fun. Some of us found out the hard way that we should stand well back!
What better way to finish our afternoon than with some bonfire food. Hot dogs and hot pop! Oh and we made the flames burn different colours. MAGIC!
