Round up

Listen to Genevieve summarise what has been learned over the course of the week.

Listen to Genevieve summarise what we’ve learned this week. It’s certainly true that we’ve covered a lot of ground!

  • We’ve looked at the events leading up to the Declaration of Independence.

  • We’ve explored two Suffrage movements: the Chartists and the Suffragettes.

  • We’ve learned a little about the lives and work of two famous 20th century freedom fighters: Gandhi and Mandela.

In each case, we’ve considered how these movements towards equality and liberty were influenced by Magna Carta.

Now, please take a moment to think about these questions and share your ideas in the comments below.
