Singing a nursery rhyme is a great way to bond with your little one. Have a go at following the rhyme lyrics and watch the video below.

This nursery rhyme is about the Gunpowder Plot which took place on the 5th November in 1605 when Guy Fawkes and his co conspirators attempted and failed to blow up the Houses Of Parliament. Every year on the 5th Nov is Guy Fawkes Night or Bonfire Night to commemorate this!

Remember, Remember, the 5th of November lyrics

Remember, remember, the 5th of November,

Gunpowder, treason and plot.

I see no reason

Why gunpowder treason

Should ever be forgot.

Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, 'twas his intent

To blow up the King and the Parliament

Three score barrels of powder below

Poor old England to overthrow

By God's providence he was catch'd

With a dark lantern and burning match

Holler boys, holler boys, let the bells ring

Holler boys, holler boys

God save the King!
