History - British Monarchs
History of the Kings and Queens of the British Isles
There are few school history topics as fascinating or as jam packed with exciting stories as the history of the British monarchy. From the early Anglo Saxon kings who sought to bring the country together following the power vacuum left by the retreat of the Romans, through the Kings and Queens of the Middle Ages and all their excesses, to the Glorious Revolution of 1688 where King James II was deposed and our nation became the Constitutional Monarchy that exists to this day.
The changing power of the monarchs is a really popular topic at KS2. Key moments include: the invasion by King William I and his subsequent feudal reorganisation of land and power; King John's Magna Carta in 1215 which led to the establishing of parliament. We can also help if your topic is aimed at an individual monarch, perhaps Henry VIII or Queen Elizabeth I, at KS1, or if you are digging deeper into a topic like the dissolution of the monasteries or the wars of the roses at KS3. Whatever your British monarchs topic, let us know what you are hoping to learn about and we will find you the perfect trip or workshop.
