Related:  back to school 3halloweenThemesSeasonal Contest - Autumn/WinterThe USA Mobile This worksheet includes gist and detailed listening questions related to a YouTube video about Bonfire Night (or Guy Fawke's Night). This is a British holiday which is celebrated on November 5th. The tradition started to celebrate the failure of a plan to blow up King James I and the Houses of Parliament in 1605 (otherwise known as The Gunpowder Plot). 'Guys' are burned on top of bonfires, fireworks are set off and baked potatoes and toffee apples are typical foods eaten at this time. The poem (which we learned in school when I was a kid) is slightly different on the worksheet to what the girl quotes in the video.

But now many teachers in the UK are using film more creatively in their lessons. Former teacher Adwoa Oforiwa uses the storytelling element of films, such as Oliver Twist, to improve her students’ narrative writing. In a blog for the Guardian, Oforiwa writes: “In the classroom, film is more than just the carrot after the stick of ploughing through a book with young people. “It is a vehicle through which students can see literature in a new light, access new worlds and fantastic experiences, and which can encourage them to seek out and read the original stories for themselves.” Mobile Halloween: eight activity pages plus фnswer Key.
