Year 2 Guy Fawkes Workshop

Year 2 took part in an exciting Guy Fawkes workshop as part of their topic on the Gunpowder Plot. During the interactive workshop the children dressed up as some of the plotters such as Robert Catesby, while other children dressed up as soldiers.

“We liked it when Guy Fawkes kept saying “ma darlin’.”

“I liked dressing up as a plotter, I especially liked hiding the gunpowder barrel in my cloak.”

“I learnt that Guy Fawkes was born in 1570.”

“We learnt that the plotters used 36 barrels of gunpowder.”

“The children and staff really enjoyed the workshop. The actor was extremely engaging and very informative. The children have remembered some key facts from the story of The Gunpowder Plot and used them in their work.” Mr Farrow
