Reception all enjoyed learning about ‘The Gunpowder Plot’ and the reason behind the celebration of Fireworks Night. We loved hearing about King James I and how Guy Fawkes wanted to use gunpowder to blow up the King in the Houses of Parliament. We thought about the sounds fireworks make as they blast into the sky and learnt that the word to describe this is ‘onomatopoeia’. We then carefully wrote some of these words on some fireworks which, alongside our beautiful firework art work, has made a great display. Click below to watch our wonderful ‘Bonfire Night’ song.
