Learning about fireworks

This week we have been talking all about fireworks.

We talked to our chatty chum, sharing our own experiences of fireworks and why we do or do not like them! Some of us love the bright colours and the glittery sparkles in the sky, but some of us also think that fireworks can be too loud!

To learn about fireworks we have been listening to the history behind why we have this special celebration on the 5th of November. We learnt all about Guy Fawkes and his terrible plan.

In our literacy learning we have been thinking of lots of ways to describe fireworks and we have been labelling pictures using our phonic sounds to help us.

We have also been learning lots of songs, rhymes and poems about firework.

In our Maths learning we have been thinking about 1 less than a number and how to take away amounts. To do this we sang a number rhyme to help us and we talked about how many fireworks would be left each time. We have also been doing lots of counting, especially backwards from 10!

We went out on welly boot altogether this week and had a very special treat!

We played a game of hide and seek and then we sang one of our favourite firework songs!

Here it is:

Once we had finished our song we had a chocolate sparkler and some hot chocolate to warm us up! It was delicious!
