As the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III approaches, Discovery Education the worldwide edtech leader whose state-of-the-art digital platform supports learning wherever it takes place is providing schools with resources to celebrate and explore this important moment in history.

Taking place on Saturday 6th May at Westminster Abbey in London, the event – the first coronation in 70 years will see King Charles III crowned alongside The Queen Consort. The historic ceremony will reflect the monarch’s role in today’s world and look towards the future, while showcasing the nation’s longstanding traditions and pageantry.

To support classroom observances of this historic moment, Discovery Education has created a host of new Coronation resources for UK primary schools. Spanning a broad range of subjects – from History and Art to English and Maths – and including videos, interactives, and activities, these resources will help teachers to bring the Coronation to life, providing fun and engaging ways to learn and explore this seminal event.

Available via the award-winning digital learning service Discovery Education Espresso, the new resources can be found in a special Coronation Channel, which allows teachers to find relevant content quickly and easily. Suitable for students from Foundation to KS2, Espresso’s Coronation resources include:

King Charles III Timeline and Fact File: Explore the new King’s life and achievements
