We started our topic with the children's ideas of Reach for the Stars.
We designed and made our own rockets so that our class bears can go on an adventure.
We talked about Bonfire Night and Diwali and we learnt that both these celebrations use fireworks. Matthew Tosh, a pyrotechnic, visited Foundation Phase to give us a show to explore the sights, sounds and smells of fireworks and the science behind them.
We wrote some fantastic firework poems in our groups.
We had an amazing time creating some messy firework art using powder paint, tools and poster paint. Our yard has never looked so pretty!
