The Gunpowder Plot: Maths and English worksheets

The Gunpowder Plot of 1605 is one of our most celebrated events, as each year we commemorate the capture of Guy Fawkes with spectacular firework displays and roaring bonfires.

At this time of year a visit to our Special Occasions category will be very rewarding; just dip into the great Fireworks maths worksheets to provide something a little bit different.

For younger children we have ‘Fireworks 1’, a set of pages which looks at counting and matching small numbers, up to 8.
For Year 3 we have ‘Firework Festival’, a sparkling page of word problems, covering money, addition and subtraction.
For those of you who are looking for some Statistics questions then why not try our ‘Firework’ Tally Chart and Graph pages. Also, don’t forget the Firework Display worksheet which requires some tricky addition of money to complete successfully.
Our Firework Sale worksheets are a great way to look at percentages, as there are 10% and 20% off all the fantastic fireworks on display, including Rockets and Comets!

Finally, we have a special English vocabulary worksheet which takes a look at the vocabulary associated with Fireworks, an excellent starting point for story writing as well as a detailed comprehension on the Gunpowder Plot.
