Guy Fawkes/Bonfire night learning!

This week as part of our reading and writing, we have been learning all about 'Guy Fawkes'!

Students had the opportunity to read all about 'Bonfire night' and how it became an annual celebration.
We learnt about who Guy Fawkes was and what his role was in the Gunpowder plot! We also had an art session where we designed our own fireworks - this related to our Inquiry topic of Celebrations as we tried to design fireworks that would be 'let off' on a day that celebrated us!

Here is some of the work the students have done.

Edith's timeline!

Troy's Timeline!

Akanesi's Firework for Nesi Day!
Hamish's Poem!

We learnt a poem to help us remember what Bonfire night/Guy Fawkes is about. Have a look and see if you can learn it too!

Hi Room8, I really like the way you put in interesting information that hooks in the audience, you really did hook me in :) I'm still trying to figure out what you need to work on, other than that keep it up!
