The Gunpowder Plot
and Guy Fawkes.
Over four hundred years ago, in 1605, there was a man called Guy Fawkes.
James was the King of England in 1605.
(King - 王)
Guy Fawkes did not like King James I. They had different religions and King James wanted everyone to worship God in the same way as him. If they didn’t, they had to pay lots of money or even go to prison.
It is in London.
Guy Fawkes wanted to kill James I.
So he and his men made a plan….
The Gunpowder Plot
Gunpowder - 火药 Plot - 情节
Each year the King would visit the Houses of Parliament in London, Westminster.
Guy Fawkes and his men tried to dig a tunnel.
But they hit a wall and couldn’t dig any further.
Instead, they rented a cellar under the Houses of Parliament.
They put 36 barrels of dynamite in the cellar.
Guy Fawkes hid in the cellar. He was going to light the fuse on the dynamite which would blow up Parliament and kill James I.
Guy Fawkes was caught by the guards in the cellar.
Guy Fawkes was captured and put in prison.
The king was saved.
The people were happy.
To celebrate, they lit bonfires in the streets of London.
This is why we call the 5th of November Bonfire Night.
How do we celebrate?
We celebrate on November 5th to remember the day the King was saved and the Gunpowder Plot failed.
As with all celebrations, there is lots of food!
People gather around bonfires.

Guy Fawkes Poem
Remember, remember the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot!
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Thankfully, the Houses of Parliament were not blown up.
But…what if the Gunpowder Plot had actually worked?!
