Bonfire Night with Ellen

Resources for Bonfire night.

  1. Label pictures on first Powerpoint slide.
  2. Ask the students what they know about Bonfire Night-anything from the tradition to how we celebrate it.
  3. Go over the key vocab, try to explain in English first.
  4. Watch Horrible Histories video.
  5. Get the students to summarise the video, checking they understand the key points. If not explain to them.
  6. Get the students to fill in the answers to the ‘jigsaw’ worksheet.
  7.  Go to the Comprehension page of the powerpoint to give the students the answers, then get them to fill in the other worksheets using this information.
  8. I’ve finished with what I do on bonfire night, but you can use a game from BBC – here’s the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/civil_war_revolution/launch_gms_gunpowder_plot.shtml

Enjoy!
