The School Council presentsu2026u2026King John -the Pantomime!
Miss Towndrow asked the School Council to explain to Key Stage 2 all about Magna Carta and how important a date it is in British History. We decided to put on a show.
King John was a very bad man indeed and deserved all the boos and hisses that he got from the audience. He was always demanding more taxes from the people of England .In the photos you can see his soldiers dragging off a nobleman and his family to throw them into the Tower of London and leave them to starve to death. We explained to the audience how the rest of his noblemen had had enough of this kind of treatment . In 1215, they forced King John to sign a document giving the people more rights- the charter we know today as the Magna Carta.
