This week in history, you will be comparing Queen Victoria to our Queen, Queen Elizabeth 11. Use the links on the ppt to help you with your research.


Watch the video about 'World Religion Day'. Then, have a go at one of the two tasks outlined on the document - either a crossword or a sorting task. These can both be found below.
