Magna Carta

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

Every primary school in Britain is to receive a souvenir copy of Magna Carta and a timeline wallchart.

The initiative is being run by the Magna Carta 800th Anniversary Committee.

This year marks the 800th anniversary of the sealing of Magna Carta on June 15, 1215, by King John. Schools will also get the Magna Carta Chronicle, a newspaper including 45 tabloid-style articles charting the fight for freedom and rights over the past 800 years.

A selection of curriculum-mapped activities, lesson plans and worksheets that integrate the Magna Carta Chronicle across history, citizenship, literacy and art in key stages 2 and 3 are available to download.
