When it comes to fireworks, the sky really is the limit! A fun theme to inspire art, literacy and drama activities
According to Charles Clarke, ‘Enjoyment is the birthright of every child.’ But what about us adults too? With role-play we all get a chance to have fun and share in the creativity and learning that is taking place. I often try to pick topics and themes that get me excited (fireworks being one!) so that I can pass on my enthusiasm to the children.
Fireworks is a great theme because it encompasses so many areas of learning and, more importantly, it is something that the majority of children will have experienced – either on bonfi re night, at a birthday party or as part of a religious celebration such as Divali. This also provides many avenues into the topic, with opportunities for children from different backgrounds to share their personal experiences.
