Reception’s Visit to East Hoathly Bonfire

The children in Reception have been learning about different celebrations that involve noisy activities such a fireworks! Last Friday, they  went on a walk through the village and visited the Bonfire structure that is built by members of the carnival society. They looked at the shapes and the design of the bonfire and discussed what it meant.

When they got back to school the children used their creative skills to draw their own versions of the bonfire and talked about why it helps the people in the village remember.

A few of the staff attended the Bonfire Celebrations on Saturday and would like to say how impressed they were with the children who were part of the celebration and how mature and respectful members of our school community were during the memorial part of the evening.
