As the sun goes to bed early, the weather turns colder, and the darkness of night is with us for longer periods of time; it is a bit of relief to have the excitement of Bonfire Night!
Each year we cozy up with the people in our community, and utter the phrase, 'Remember, Remember, the 5th of November!'. We eat yummy food by a glowing fire, make a funny person called Guy out of old clothes, and as a grand finale, sparklers and fireworks are set off!
So, what else can we do to use this cultural event as a learning and creative expression opportunity?
Starting the Conversation
Send home a note to parents to ask for them to take photos of their child or allow their child to take a photo of their family way to celebrate Bonfire night. The next day during group time, have children share their ideas, reactions, and personal feelings about Bonfire Night.
