FIREWORKS AT THE ASSEMBLY? OH YES!

As you may or may not know, we have the school Assembly every Monday. An Assembly is when the entire school gathers together in one place to share important events for that week. It is like having Form Time with the entire school:).


We always start the Assembly with an important topic dedicated to that special day or one of the personal goals. A - a class with a teacher prepares something for the rest of us - to teach us about it, entertain us, quiz us, engage us! It can be pretty cool, because we all get to perform for the entire school - all the pupils and teachers, including our school counsellor and the principal! It can be slightly nerve-wrecking, especially when you do this for the first time! Sometimes we even have guests who come to school to teach us something or share something important with us.


After the presentation, the principal invites an assistant to announce the pupils from each class who did something amazing the week before. They then receive their principal's award certificate, which is displayed in the school lobby for everyone to see. Then the weekly house points are announced and added up, because our in-school house competition is no laughing matter - it is worth fighting for the prizes which we get at the end of the year! We are sorted into Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Mercury, and every house has pupils from each class and generation, including various teachers. Next, we celebrate achievements and birthdays with a loud Hip-hip-hooray! Once per midterm we also announce the winner(s) or the librarian's challenge, which our English teacher sets for us all at the door of the library! In the end we learn about any special events scheduled for that week (like, for instance, the Halloween dress-up, Crazy Hair Day, Cooks for Books, Secret Santa, etc.).


So what have fireworks to do with our Assembly, you may wonder?!


Well, this week we started the second half-term with an incredible presentation about Guy Fawkes, which Year 5 prepared for us with their form teacher, Ms Grace. In order to make the topic more interesting, fun and memorable, they rewrote the lyrics to the famous song Firework by Katy Perry and sang it for us! Can you believe it? Why Fireworks? Well, because it is a symbol important for this event! They also drew fireworks for us - see 2 illustrations below. We have decided to share their new version of the lyrics here with you as it states the relevant facts about Guy Fawkes' Day in a really cool way! Thank you, Year 5!



They really felt, like the king's unfair.

Told them what to do and even what to wear.

They felt like he’s too protestant,

So stuck in his ways, cannot be replaced?

They thought it was a real time for change.

With six feet of tall flames, thought no one will suspect a thing.

But the parliament - it still remains.

'Cause their mission failed.

Now we remember the night with light.

And let it shine

On the 5th of

November

'Cause now we light fireworks,

To remember that Guy Fawkes,

And that his mission fa ai ailed

And the king was oh kay ay ay

Cause now we light fireworks,

To remember that Guy Fawkes

And that his mission fa ai ailed

And the king was oh kay ay ay.
