Remember, remember the 5th of November.

I really enjoy this time of year and I still find fireworks a huge thrill.  I have collected together some quick teaching ideas if Bonfire Night is something that you want to celebrate with your class.  The ideas range from poems and information texts to crafts and art – the best bits are edible of course!

For story inspiration you could share the fantastic Philip Pullman book ‘The Firework Maker’s Daughter’ – if you Google it there are loads of ideas for sharing it with your pupils or – if you can get your hands on a copy – George Layton’s ‘The Fib and other stories’ has a short story called ‘The Firework Display’ set in 1950s England.  Here is a link that contains an extract as well as other ideas from the Lancashire Grid for Learning:
