Today, we learned why November 5th is an important date in British history. We learned who Guy Fawkes was and what he planned to do. We then looked at how we celebrate bonfire night every year on November 5th and how the celebration has evolved to what it is today.

We then spoke about fire safety and how to behave around fireworks. Finally, we created our very own firework pictures using pastels. They were beautiful!
