Fire safety, fireworks and firefighters

Last week we learnt about Fireworks Night and how to stay safe near fireworks and bonfires. At Forest School we made pretend bonfires and talked about fire safety. In P.E. we pretended to be different fireworks and made up a dance to some music by Handel. We also made some beautiful fireworks using chalk and glitter on black paper. In Literacy we read non-fiction books about firefighters and discussed what they do. Then we learnt about why we celebrate Fireworks Night and the story of Guy Fawkes. We even pretended to be firefighters in child-initiated time, using the real hose to put out fires in our outside area!
