Bonfire Night - Guy Fawkes Reading Comprehension

An easy to use reading comprehension pack with three sections of differentiated questions. This activity focuses on the story of Guy Fawkes and the plotters, their plans and how they were caught and executed, before investigating why we don’t celebrate foiled terrorist plots today. It can be used in form time as part of literacy focus, or in an English lesson for KS3/4 GCSE comprehension training.

It is interesting, useful, very easy to use and certainly relevant for this time of year. It includes an editable word version and a PDF version.
