Guy Fawkes Day or Bonfire Night is a popular annual British celebration (5th November) that is carried out by thousands of people who attend large organized events centred on a bonfire. Despite its violent origins, this traditional festivity has become an enjoyable event to have fun with family and friends.
In order to continue to educate CLIL students in topics related to British Culture, these were taken to the school’s hall and were shown an exhibition on this British annual commemoration. The Language Assistant took them in groups of 15-17 to the hall and gave them a brief lecture on the background and traditions of this celebration. Then, the students were asked to complete some questions about the exhibited information.
In the meanwhile, the English teacher showed a short Guy Fawkes clip by the BBC channel to the rest of the students that you can also enjoy now clicking the following link.
