WORKSHOP CONTENT

Against the backdrop of Catholic persecution, we look at the life of a young Guy Fawkes and examine the factors that shaped his beliefs and future actions. As he becomes a soldier, the children help him fight his cause in the Netherlands and Spain before returning to England as a gunpowder expert to hatch his plan in the dark cellars of Parliament House. What decision by James I prompted this plan? And what outcome awaited Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators when they were tried as traitors?

WHAT TEACHERs SAY...

Great use of acting and historical drama/knowledge. Fantastic stickers and praise!

The drama and actions have really helped the children remember the story - they really enjoyed the experience. Excellent.
