Year 2 Time Travellers!

 Last week Freshwater Theatre Company visited us to help us travel back in time. The children had fun engaging in a historical workshop exploring life in 1605 and the events of the Gunpowder Plot. Through drama they recreated the events that led up to Guy Fawkes being arrested for high treason.  During this session the children also reenacted how Guy Fawkes was captured under the Houses of Parliament on the night of 5th November 1605. The workshop was a fantastic way to capture the children's imaginations and it helped them remember the key facts of this historical event.  

Then on Friday we used this experience to help us write poems using onomatopoeia. 

Great fun was had by all!
