This term Wiggins Class are learning about different celebrations and what a great week it has been for that! We had Bonfire Night early in the week which allowed us to learn about Guy Fawkes and The Gunpowder Plot. We had a great text to use in our Critical Reading which told us lots of information about the history of this event. We also used our reading lessons to distinguish between facts and opinions and to find details. Did you know that 36 barrels of gunpowder were hidden in a vault under the Houses of Parliament?
Today we learned more about the festival of Diwali and tasted lots of different sweets which are given as presents during this celebration. There were very mixed opinions about them but everyone gave them a try!
