Problems of pollution

Have you ever wondered what happens when you pollute? You might not realise it but it is a terrible outcome which includes harming animals such as birds turtles fish and more sea creatures. Just one little plastic is enough to kill one animal or harm them really badly. Did you know that thousands of sea creatures are killed a day. Shockingly in 2020 if we don’t stop littering then there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans!

What and Why it causes pollution?

Well you might think pollution is natural though actually its us humans who cause a lot of pollution every single second. Maybe it is not caused by you but is caused by loads of people in the world.

World Book Day

There was lots of excitement on the Reception classes today as children arrived all dressed up and ready for a fun day to celebrate World Book Day 2019. The staff were equally excited too. The children all surprised us with their enthusiasm about books , characters and story telling. Thank you to all the parents who helped to make today so exciting and fun. We look forward to next year.

Guy Fawkes and the Gundpowder plot

The Gunpowder plot took place on the 5th November.One day 13 men decided to blow up the Houses of Parliament and a letter then came to the king who was in the throne before and on the letter it warned him to stay away from Houses of Parliament and it was unknown. Guy Fawkes was the person who tried to destroy the Houses of Parliament.They found Guy Fawkes with the gunpowder in the cellar and arrested him. In 1604,Robert Catesby started to look for Catholic men to help him with the gunpowder plot. During the 16th century there were many religious changes in England. King HenryVII wanted to divorce his wife.

Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder plot

Guy Fawkes  was blowing up the Housee of parliament because his father went to prison       because his dad never went to the Protestant church.In 1605 a group of Catholic men planned to kill the Protestant king of England king James I by blowing up the Houses of Parliament with the gunpowder.They knew they would be in parliament on 5 November so they chose that day  for the explosion.This plan is known as the  gunpowder plot.

The gruesome Gunpowder plot has come to an end!!!!!

       For many years, people have known about the gunpowder plot and how Robert Catesby – with his cunning plotters – tried to BLOW up the Houses of Parliament, where  the King of England and lords were going to be.They were angry because of how Catholics were being treated. Well it all started when King Henry VIII wanted to divorce his wife Catherine for a woman called Anne Boleyn , but he couldn’t because the Catholics did not allow it, so King Henry VIII created his own Church called  the Church of England (Protestant Church).

Robert Catesby

Did you know that in 1605 a group of men plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament? The leader was Robert Catesby, because of who he witnessed his dad going to prison multiple times, due to King James. He was forcing all Catholics to also attend Protestant churches.

That’s why he was so angry, he created a group of  13 and these were the key men: Robert Catesby, Guy Fawkes, Thomas Wintour, Fancis Tresham and Robert Cecil.
