Whilst we mourn and reflect on the death of Queen Elizabeth II, these resources and activities are brilliant to help children consider and reflect on the life and work of Her Majesty the Queen who was Britain’s longest-reigning monarch. Many children will have celebrated the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen earlier this year and remember that magnificent event.
This is an amazingly historic time for British Royalty, not only have our children lived through the platinum jubilee celebrating the longest-reigning British monarch, they are also going to witness the queen’s funeral at Westminster Abbey and also the ascension of King Charles III to the Throne and at some point in the future the Coronation of King Charles III.
Queen Elizabeth II passed away on 8th September 2022 at her residence in Balmoral, Scotland. She was the longest reigning monarch, having celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in 2022 just months before her death. Her eldest son immediately became King Charles III. During this period of mourning, schools will remain open (closing for the bank holiday funeral).
For anyone struggling with how to answer kids’ questions on the death of Quen Elizabeth II, City Kids Magazine has some answers to the questions such as “What is Lying in State?” and Women’s Health has a more in-depth article.
Below you’ll find a range of resources that will support educators and parents in helping children remember and reflect on The Queen and her achievements.

I always print my printables directly onto 160 gsm cardstock using my Epson Ecotank Printer rather than regular paper, this way they are a little more durable and the pens do not bleed through to the other side. However, if you do not have a home printer then just pop to a library and use theirs.
