Guy Fawkes Resources

Guy Fawkes / Bonfire Night always provides us with some great learning opportunities for our kiddos, plus we all love watching the most beautiful firework displays that go off to celebrate Bonfire Night / Guy Fawkes.

It is celebrated every year on the 5th November and is a way to remember / celebrate the Gunpowder Plot.

If you are struggling for different ways of how you can teach your students this year about Guy Fawkes / Bonfire Night, just check out the fab resources and crafts activities below that are sure to get your kiddos engaged and ready to learn while also having some seasonal fun in your classroom. 

Flashcard stories are a big hit on my TpT at the moment. I basically simplify the story down small with lots of great, eye-catching graphics with just the main details included, so as not to overload students. You can view it here.

Here is word to pic matching. This is a great resource for introducing vocabulary, working with non verbal students, enhancing student vocabulary, word recognition, vocabulary recap and speech therapy sessions. You can get more info on this resource here.

This is one of my most favourite activities. I have a serious obsession with flip books, so when a teacher friend asked me if I'd design her one for Guy Fawkes, I jumped right in! I wasn't sure how it would go down with the kiddos at first, so I put off sharing it with anyone until it was tested out in the classroom. Well, it turns out, the students loved it! They loved reading the facts from the reading passages included, working out the correct answers, colouring in the pictures, cutting and sticking, and even putting the whole flip book together!
