Year 5 have looked in detail at the Guy Fawkes story. We have been learning about the reasons behind the gun powder plot.
This can be a tricky story for the pupils to understand when they look at it in great detail. We have introduced new vocabulary such as treason and confession.
We held a class discussion talking about why we still remember the 5th of November each year.
This learning then led to some creative artwork. We watched a short demonstration video, and then created our own London skylines.
The pupils were able to identify some of the defining architecture in the London skyline. We created a template, and then added in some fireworks using pastels and chalk.
