Today we would like you to investigate the kings and queens from English history! Can you create a timeline of kings and queens from the year 1066 to this year? For each monarch (king/queen) can you write down 5 facts about them and include it on your timeline.

There is a timeline attached to this blog to help you (it’s from twinkl). Make your timeline interesting,  include drawings or pictures from the internet to help illustrate your timeline then send us a photograph of what you have done to the usual address:
