Remember, remember, the Fifth of November
Gunpowder treason and plot
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
What mysteries lie behind the famous gunpowder plot. In November 1605, Guy Fawkes, and twelve others, plotted to kill King James 1
Barrels of gunpowder were put in the cellars below the Houses of Parliament ready to be ignited. The plot, however, was thwarted when guardsmen found Guy Fawkes red-handed. He was arrested and sent to the Tower of London.
Today in England, some 400 hundred years after, Bonfire Night is still celebrated.
Children make ‘guys’ by filling old clothes with crumpled newspapers.
They are then displayed to passers-by whilst asking for “A penny for the guy”.
At the end of the night effigies of Guy Fawkes are burnt on top of bonfires.
People chant “Remember remember the 5th of November” whilst watching fireworks displays.
Teach your kids these bonfire words.
