Gunpowder treason and plot

We celebrate bonfire night on the 5th November, we have been learning what happened on that day that nearly changed the course of history.  What part did Guy Fawkes play?

Today we celebrate with fireworks and bonfires.  The fireworks represent the explosives that were never used by the plotters.  We built our own bonfire and celebrated by toasting marshmallows and drinking hot chocolate.
