To continue with our theme on the Owl who was afraid of the Dark, we organised a 'Fun in the Dark' evening at school on Thursday the 15 November.
Our Grade two's were so excited and could not wait to come to school when it was dark! They arrived armed with torches and a picnic supper, raring to go!
To start, they learnt about Guy Fawkes from Michael and then they helped him build a guy. Everyone had great fun stuffing the guy with newspapers, whilst chanting "remember, remember the 5th of November!
|The guy is built - ready for the stake!|
Once the guy had been built Gill and I gave each child a packet that contained everything that they needed for a treasure hunt, as well as glowsticks.
The children looked at the secret number on the back of their masks and used that to find their partner for the activity. They set off and by the time they returned it was dark - at last they could use their torches!
Excitement was building as the children sat and ate their supper and waited for the guy to be lit!
|Aphiwe looks for the next set of instructions|
|Writing their name with chalk was one of the instructions.|
