Monday - WOW experience. Today we are going to have our very own firework display inside. Make sure the children dress as if they are going to watch a display (hat, gloves, scarf, wellies etc). Please watch the video to show the children a firework display. If you have any hot chocolate and marshmallow's this may help the children to get into character and pretend they are actually watching the fireworks. Remember to send us your photographs!
