One Childhood - One Chance

Year 5 Firepit

The Firework Maker's Daughter

As part of our study of The Firework Maker's Daughter, 5Y went outside to imagine that they were Lila inside the grotto of the fire-fiend Razvani. We lit a fire that ‘licked’ and ‘spat’. We imagined we could see the fire-imps dancing in the flames and Razvani himself. We used colour changers for the flames to make it seem more eerie. Each of us then ‘fed’ the fire to see it grow and then ‘dwindle’. It was a great stimulus to a piece of writing about how fireworks work!
