Our children have been exploring the topic of Bonfire night. They have looked at videos showing them all about Guy Fawkes, we continuously challenged their thoughts and knowledge on the story. We have also spoke to the children during circle times to hear about their experiences of bonfire, looking at what they heard, saw and could smell. We also spoke in depth about fire safety.
We have also linked the topic to sensory and creative activities throughout the nursery.
