Magna Carta for Schools

King John play

As a result of the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta in 2015, Salisbury Cathedral are pleased to offer a brand new interactive resource for KS 1 and 2 children entitled Tales of Magna Carta.  We worked with designers and technicians from Herd Communications and the resource has four short animations re-telling the story of Magna Carta and King John and the legacy of the document today. With activities for the classroom, online interactives, children's resources and background information it supports teachers of the primary curriculum in History, PSHE, Citizenship.
