Gunpowder, Treason and Plot

Today is Guy Fawkes Day! We have been learning about King James I of England - the first Stuart King, and the events of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.There are lots of rhymes about what happened all those years ago, so we decided to write our own! And in case you missed the news about what happened ... here is a copy for you!

We are just about to blow up some rockets (just outside - not the Parliament buildings). So will let you know how that goes soon!

Gunpowder Plot

Let us remember

The fifth of November

When a gunpowder plot

almost got the lot …

Jealous James and his parliament pals

Some friends of Guy,

Gunpowder did buy,

stashed it in a secret cellar.

It was the king they wanted to kill,

All went well with plans until …


Tattling Tresham told the tale,

And the soldiers came and sent Guy to jail.

This was the end of the planned powder plot,

And in the end, it was James got the lot!

 But it is Guy we remember on the fifth of November!


  1. I hope you enjoy the fireworks and don't frighten the neighbours in Gangilonga! It was like a war zone here on Saturday night with all the firework parties.

  2. We didn't have fireworks here! But we made rockets with baking soda and vinegar! It was messy but not noisy! It just went pop! We had Ben and Sam round with us!
