How to make a firework!

Mckee class would like to tell you how to make a firework.

We had great fun today, learning about Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot, bonfires and fireworks. We made some fireworks of our own and "set them off", remembering to stand back and watch from a safe distance. Mrs Johnson suggested we write some instructions so that blog readers could make their own.

Draw around a pot to get a circle.

Colour the circle in.

Cut the circle out.
Put the rubbish in the bin.

Colour the other side of the circle.

Bend the paper round to make a cone.
Put sellotape on.

Tear the tissue paper into strips.
Stick on the inside of the cone.

Put the cone on the top of the plastic milk bottle.
Clap your hands on the bottle very hard.

The firework goes up in the air very high.
The air from the bottle shoots it up.
We made fireworks!

  1. What a lovely idea! Especially to encourage those that are frightened of really loud fireworks.
