Guy Fawkes from the BBC Timewatch Team – On 5 November every year, the effigy of Guy Fawkes is still burned on bonfires across England in recognition of his part in the failed ‘Gunpowder Plot’ of 1605. This one is suitable for older children, it is the story narrated and acted out by real people.
Bonfire Night – From Activity Village “Bonfire Night is a uniquely British event when we ‘celebrate’ the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot against the King and Parliament in the early 17th Century. In fact, nobody cares about the origins of the celebration anymore, but we all enjoy a good bonfire, firework display, and sausages on the 5th November each year!” (Activity Village) See the puzzles, printables and crafts ideas on this site.
The above YouTube video, along with an accompanying pack of resources, can be found at dizkis.co.uk “We hope that you enjoy learning about Guy Fawkes and why we celebrate the 5th of November, told sweetly by our little Millie aged 4. We also have a free printable children’s activity pack filled with arts, crafts and puzzles to celebrate this special occasion.” (DizKis)
