Queen Elizabeth II Special Edition

Introduce your pupils to the history of the monarchy with our special edition. Queen Elizabeth II is our longest-reigning monarch – surpassing her great, great grandmother, Queen Victoria. To commemorate such a momentous occasion, First News takes an in-depth look at the history of monarchs and what being the Queen of England actually entails, in our 32-page special edition.

In Focus: Queen Elizabeth explores the fascinating life and reign of our Queen, from her birth in April 1926, her childhood during wartime Britain and her unexpected ascension to the throne. We explain the history of monarchs using timelines, pictures and a royal family tree.

Take your pupils on a journey of social change through Queen Elizabeth’s reign – from war, the atom bomb and the collapse of the Berlin Wall, to the invention of television, the first man on the moon and the digital age.

Take a look at our other free special editions including WW1 and WW2, fake news and Shakespeare.

This special edition is available as a free pdf, please email us at schools@firstnews.co.uk if you would like this issue or any others sent to you.
