This is something pupils might undertake at home.
This unit of work has been designed to be used as a one-off study to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee. It covers her life from her role as Princess Elizabeth through her coronation, and other jubilee events, to her influence today. As Britain’s longest serving monarch her reign covers a 70-year period of massive change. The youngest children will focus mainly on a comparison between 1952 and 2022 to strengthen their grasp of similarity and difference. Older children will extend their chronological understanding to look at jubilees as far back as late Queen Victoria’s reign so they gain a better understanding of change through time.
- Pupils are able to recognise a variety of ways in which the queen’s influence is felt in our lives today in terms of her role at home and within the Commonwealth as well as more obviously on e.g. coins, bank notes stamps and pillar boxes and even tomato ketchup!
Simply conclude by underlining the different ways in which the queen still influences our lives today, even as a 96 year-old queen.
