This week we have been talking about Bonfire night. We started off by asking the children what they already knew. There was lots of discussion about the sounds, smells and sights.
We went into the Forest School and made a big pretend camp fire. The children collected sticks to add to it.
Then we added some paper flames.
Next we sang the song ‘Camp fires burning’.
Afterwards, the children split into small groups to work cooperatively and build smaller fires. They worked together as a team collecting sticks to build their small group fires. Once they had done that they each had a pretend marshmallow (cotton wool ball). They found a stick for it and pretended to toast it on the fire.
The children had fun pretending to warm themselves up and toast marshmallows on the fire.
