Bonfire Night: A Firework Story Massage

It's Bonfire night or Guy Fawkes Night over in the UK today. It is a huge historical event celebrated with huge bonfires, the burning of Guy Fawkes effigies and firework displays up and down the country. To find out more take a look here

Our English class have been learning all about Bonfire Night by making their own fireworks. One way to consolidate their learning is through a clothes-on paired back massage. All our massage strokes can be found over at the wonderful Story Massage website. As with all our massage stories, please ensure the children ask permission before giving a massage. 

One Huge Firework

One Huge Firework
One Huge Firework

One huge firework (fan)

Looking rather dull and blue (sad:half circle)

Then it went WHOOSH (fan)

And how the sparks flew! (sprinkles)

Red and green and gold stars (bounce)

Falling through the sky.(claw)

Ending with a great big bang (drum)

And then a little ss-sigh (calm)


Main language and communication aims:

  • Listen carefully to key words in a poem
  • Begin to recite a poem
  • Use back massage strokes appropriately to represent words in a poem
