2022 is a huge milestone in the momentous life of Queen Elizabeth II, as she marks seventy years on the throne with a Platinum Jubilee. So, knowing that schools up and down the land will want to celebrate this unique achievement, we’ve developed Long to Reign Over Us – a joyous and reflective programme of drama based workshops for every primary school year group!

Able to accommodate the whole of up to a two-form entry school in a single day, Long to Reign Over Us opens with a whole-school assembly (which can be streamed if needs be), looking at some “landmark” British monarchs – and exploring the role of monarchy today. The rest of the day is divided into a series of drama-based workshops looking at ways in which Britain has changed over the course of the Queen’s long reign. Each year group takes its own focus as follows …

Reception: exploring ways in which the clothes we wear have changed since 1952 …

Year 1: comparing and contrasting the toys children played with seventy years ago to the ones they enjoy today …

Year 2: looking at how our homes have changed during the Queen’s reign …

Year 3: entertainment then and now – what are the similarities? And what are the differences?

Year 4: investigating the evolution of travel since Elizabeth II first came to the throne …

Year 5: focusing on ways in which families have changed over the last three and a half decades …

Year 6: getting to grips with how we communicate with each other – what changes have there been since the coronation?

Workshops take place at your school and are available to primary schools across the UK.
