Week ending 3rd November 2017

This week in Porthcothan we have been learning all about Bonfire night. 
We discussed what we know about the event and why it is celebrated.
The children have learnt about Guy Fawkes and his gunpowder plot to blow up Parliament to overhaul King James, they acted out the plot in groups, thought of questions that they would ask King James or Guy Fawkes,  created firework pictures using the laptops and oil pastels and have worked hard to remember "Remember, remember the 5th of November, Gun powder, Treason and Plot!"
This week, year 1 have also started to learn the songs for our Christmas show 'Gold, Frankincense and Mirth!'
The children have made a super start at learning the words and actions.
The roles will be sent out next week along with the script and costume ideas.
We can't wait for show day on the 14th December!!
