Bonfire Night

On 5th November, British people light bonfires to commemorate the Gunpowder plot. Do you want to know more about this tradition? Let's see what happened on a night like this in 1605. Nowadays, it's called Bonfire Night.

Task 1: Some questions on the power point:

1. Who was king James I's mother?
2. What was his religion?
3. True or false: 
   James VI of Scotland = James I of England.
4. What is the meaning in Spanish of the                     
   following words: "plot" "oath" and "puppet".
5. Can you explain the expression "a penny for the guy".

Guy Fawkes

It is said that Fawkes was a tall, powerfully built man, with thick reddish-brown hair, flowing moustache, and a bushy reddish-brown beard

Task 2: If you are a student of 1ESO or 2ESO, write a short description of your best friend in the class. I will try to find out who s/he is.

Task 3: If you want to have some fun while learning history, go to the BBC webpage and play the game visiting the old cellars of the Houses of Parliament. If you are a good searcher, you may avoid the explosion (4ESO activity)

You can also put these words in the correct order  in the BBC's game (3ESO activity)

Taks 4: these two videos will also help you if you are a 1st cycle student 

or if, on the other hand, you want to find more about the conspirators as a second cycle student

T.S Eliot even wrote a poem to honor them 

Have a nice Bonfire Night and get lots of pennies for the guy!

    I haven't got a really best friend in the class, but i've got good friends. The girl who i'm gonna talk about is tall, thin and she's a funny girl. She has got long curly brown hair and big brown eyes. What more I can tell about her? She's always laughing all the time and she's very brave with all the teachers.
