Remember, remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, guy, t’was his intent
To blow up king and parliament.
Three score barrels were laid below
To prove old England’s overthrow.
By God’s mercy he was catch’d
With a darkened lantern and burning match.
So, holler boys, holler boys, Let the bells ring.
Holler boys, holler boys, God save the king.
Today has been all about Guy Fawkes. Between our regular maths and grammar lessons, we read stories about him, made acrostics about fireworks and Rose made a smashing firework painting.
For dinner there was Tomato Soup eaten by the fireside
Followed by delicious, sticky home made Lancashire Parkin. Which was followed by s’mores
We watched the fireworks from the vantage point of our living room window, whilst I knitted on (what will become) an adorable baby bonnet.
The girls went out doors and we lit their sparklers…
