We’ve had a great first week back enjoying our ‘Bonfire Night’ topic. In Literacy we read the Gunpowder Plot story and the students worked together to sequence the story then used keywords to write acrostic poems. We made spectacular firework pictures in Art with DIY dabbers, bright paint and glitter. In Science it was bottle-rockets; we thought they were very similar to fireworks but no gunpowder was used – our rocket fuel was white vinegar and bicarbonate of soda! I hope the students shared some of their toffee apple muffins with you on Thursday; they were a lot of fun to make and we all enjoyed having one for snack yesterday and today.
