Let's Celebrate!

This half term we have been finding out about different celebrations.  We have found out about the history of the Gunpowder Plot and why we celebrate Bonfire Night on the 5th November each year.  Towards the end of this term we are going to find out about our Christmas traditions and how they originated.
