Remember, remember…

…the fifth of November!

We had some great fun doing some firework painting to celebrate bonfire night. We used red and blue paint and a toilet roll tube to get some great results.

I taught younger mindees the rhyme “Remember, remember the fifth of November” and with my school aged mindee we spoke about the reason we celebrate Guy Fawkes night who impressively was already able to tell me the reason we do it is because it’s the anniversary of an attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament led by a man called Guy Fawkes. It’s called the Gunpowder Plot, and bonfires are lit to burn the “Guy” – a kind of dummy that represents Fawkes.
