Bonfire Night: Bonfire Rolls
You will need:
To keep your bonfire in place, it is best to have a base to stick your logs and flames to. We used a paper plate and coloured it black, but you could use a card sheet.
Take four craft rolls, these will be the logs for your bonfire. Using paint sticks, paint, or any other mark making materials, colour the outsides in brown. Add some darker markings to create a log effect.
Once the base and logs are dry, stick them in place using PVA glue. Place 2 logs on the bottom and stack the others on top to create the base of your bonfire. Leave a gap in the middle to add your flames.
Use bright red, orange and yellow tissue paper sheets to create your flames, don’t be afraid to have rough edges – this adds to the effect! Layer the tissue sheets on top of each other then pinch them together from the middle. Use PVA glue to attach them to the middle of your log pile.

When looking at Maths, it can be linked with natural resources in a way that is reflective of a forest school approach, but can also always be done on a smaller scale with a play table or play tray. When in nature we can gather leaves or twigs to count and compare. Indoors, we may have resources to hand that we can count, add, subtract and compare, or bring home the leaves and twigs from your woodland adventures.
