Autumn 2 - Let's Celebrate!

This half term we will be exploring a range of celebrations and festivals. We will learn about historical traditions, significant events and religious celebrations. This will culminate in our Christmas Performance and the festivities of the season. 

 

Remember, remember the 5th of November, 

Gunpowder, treason and plot, 

I see no reason, why gunpowder treason, should ever be forgot. 

This week, we learnt about the history of Bonfire Night and why it's celebrated on the 5th of November every year. Do you know who this man is?

We enjoyed looking at clues as to who this man could be and when he lived, just by looking at the picture of him. We also looked at different objects that he would or would not have used such as a lantern, woolly hat, a torch or a pocket watch. 

It was great fun acting out the full gunpowder plot too!
