Kings and Queens

Suitable for: 7-11 years (Key stage 2), 11-14 years (Key stage 3), Teachers

This fact book brings to life Kings and Queens through the ages. The audio guides are dramatised and read by actors. Each one tells us about themselves and their reign. This is brilliant for little history lovers. This fact book may support subjects in the National Curriculum and is great as an educational resource in class. Also good for home-schooling, homework-help, project work, independent learning and reading for pleasure.

Listen to an audio clip

Who am I? Who am I? Do you mean you don't recognise me? How wonderful! Everywhere I go, people kneel to me, and call me 'the great' sometimes I would love to be able to go for a walk or a ride, and pretend that I am just another person, not who I really am KING ALFRED one of the very first kings of all England. Now have you heard of me? Just have a look at my face and you will see what a determined character I am"¦
Run your fingers over the thermoform, and then find the top of the picture. There, in the centre, is my crown. In the middle of my golden crown sticking out at the top is a shape called a fleur de lis

What our members say

Thermoforms help tremendously The student always enjoys and does understand the thermoforms. They do help tremendously when covering our topics. They are easy to follow and understand. He also likes to listen to the different and "funny" voices narrating. Library Member
Very Impressed The teachers are all very impressed with the resources. In particular the Kings & Queens pack. It fitted in very well with the curriculum. The resource was borrowed specifically for one pupil, but the teacher was so pleased with the pack that they are sharing it with the whole class. Library Member
