The Monteagle Letter played an important part in uncovering the Gunpowder Plot. Can the children write a letter warning Lord Monteagle to stay away from Parliament on the 5th of November, without revealing details of the plot? This activity should encourage the kids to research the Gunpowder Plot in a little more depth and practise their writing skills too.
