Congleton 750 Celebrations

In our class we have been finding out about the Magna Carta and also The 1272 Congleton Charter.
We were very lucky to be able to borrow the town’s display screens with mountains of history about our locality.
The children explored the Magna Carta by dramatising the story of Magnus Carter the Mole. They learnt about how the people petitioned King John to agree to the rights outlined in the Magna Carta.
After this we learnt about Henry de Lacy a Manor House owner in Congleton who granted people the rights to grow their own crops, trade and have more freedom.
we have also compared a map of Congleton in 1898 with now by sticking on colour coded spots.
