Welcome to Cedar class!
Our topic this term is:
Kings and Queens!
The class came up with some fantastic questions on this theme, which we will be exploring over the course of this term:
- How old was the oldest King or Queen in history?
- How many jewels are there in a crown?
- Who was the first King or Queen ever?
- How did royalty historically travel?
- How were castles built?
- Where did the word ‘King’ or ‘Queen’ come from?
- What happens when the King or Queen dies?
- Why did Henry VIII kill his wives?
- Should we have a monarchy?
- Does today’s monarchy have any actual power?
- Should Charles abdicate the throne?
- Is honesty always the best policy?
We aim to answer these questions, and more, throughout the term!
